Obama Tries to Deflect Blame the Dems Own: GOP Needs to Stop Rooting for Obamacare Failure

First of all, the Republicans don’t need to “root” for Obamacare to fail — the Democrats built failure into the law.

From The Hill:

President Obama blasted GOP opponents of his healthcare law as hypocrites after Republicans expressed concerns about the rocky rollout of HealthCare.gov.

In his weekly address, Obama suggested that the GOP’s focus on the issue was in bad faith because Republicans have pushed for years to repeal, defund or dismantle ObamaCare.

Republicans “spent the last few years so obsessed with denying … people access to health insurance that they just shut down the government and threatened default over it,” Obama said.

“It’s well past the time for folks to stop rooting for [the law’s] failure.”

I’m so tired of the “Republicans obsessed with denying people health insurance” bull. That’s projection on Obama’s part. So far, more people have lost their health insurance because of Obamacare than have received it through the ACA.
