Transcript for Bill Clinton Calls Obamacare 'Craziest Thing In The World'
How does Hillary Clinton is still enjoying a lead since the debate defines what a husband now. His sore spot with folks because people feel he criticized Obama can during a campaign stop take a look. You've got this crazy system where all of a sudden twenty million more people held health care and and the people around but it's been sixty hours a week. Wind up. With their premiums doubled in their coverage cut me. It's a craziest thing in the world. Now you're. You know the friends like that time well I I you know I don't think what is said was at the question people are not asking the right questions you know Obama care. Started out. As Kennedy care with Teddy Kennedy. Because he felt. That Americans. Should have. Health care every American should have health care that was what Teddy. Hello you know bill said you know you wants to be in charge of this for me and it didn't pass. And then it you know didn't go through any of the bush isn't minicamp due Obama and you know it was. I'm just gonna say was passed in Massachusetts under emit not. And then he backed off its I don't know it's not a good idea what you did at the point is don't suck out band was. Question for the people here's the problem I know you brought up earlier the fact and people's insurance premiums have gone up. Remember that the insurance company says we're gonna do everything we can to get rid of Obama catch so we're gonna raise your premiums. Why not why why isn't so hard to say. This end we should all be able to enjoy this. Let us all pay into it isn't a perfect system no system is it's not perfect and Canada's not perfect in Europe but. We at least have something to work well I don't want to say I have given about Clinton might have given his wife. An opportunity to now say I am going to make Obama care better. That's what she did he tried to Republican Party has no plan for any help yeah yeah. Just went out one thing except Atlanta I'm an attempt to purchase insurance across state lines tort reform as it is a ton things to create an actual market place. This is not a free market health insurance market that's why there's no competition there's no incentive for these companies to lower rates for people there are plans out there but I appreciate what he's saying. Because when he said unions this isn't working for a lot of people he's speaking to those people who may need either allied with Hillary Clinton made me think she's the better candidate but they are suffering his promises were made when obamacare was passed. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor you like you plan you can keep your plan. Your premiums are gonna get lower there will be no tax increase in a lot of things came try to if you have a preexisting condition you still would not just a plan to increase access this was a plan to not to lower costs for people. And the promise that no family making under 250000 dollars we'll see any tax increases they're an eighteen tax increases what this plan. Shall faint and Bill Clinton acknowledging. It just was not this is not what you said it was going to be nine you wanna monuc why Hillary Clinton wants to step up and not find it. Do it the let's talk truth is there are people who. Weights and I'm also planning to let me let launcher if we work to home. A conversation. When all of the folks whose insurance went up not because. It needed to go up the premiums they need to go up they want to because people what pissed that this program went through when you block stuff. And you make it hard for people to make to see what action can happen. After finding him up phantom anomalous and not by you I'm not even be. But I'm often offended because you know endemic for a forty years people have been trying to get health care for the people who need it and it has been blocked. You know. And work for somebody and they should you should be able to heaven is like Bernie Sanders was so popular because he believes in single Payer as a matter of fact Donald Trump believes in single Payer when Arnold was suddenly changed his mind everybody should be guaranteed help get elected doing.
