Bill Clinton: When It Comes to Obamacare, GOP ‘Begging for America to Fail’ – ABC News
By Benjamin Bell
The Republican Party is “begging for America to fail” by rooting for President Obama’s signature health care law to fail, former President Bill Clinton said during an interview for “This Week” with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos,
“I’ve never seen a time – can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail … I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ll be shocked if it fails,” Clinton, who attempted during his first term as president to overhaul the country’s healthcare system in the early 1990s, said during an interview taped Thursday in New York while the annual Clinton Global Initiative was taking place.
A recent ABC News-Washington Post-poll found that more than half of Americans are opposed to the Affordable Care Act. But for his part, Clinton is optimistic that with time, the law – known more commonly as “Obamacare” – will grow in popularity.
The current crop of Democrats have no plan on how to deal with our mounting $17 trillion national debt. In addition, the actual liabilities of the federal government—including Social Security, Medicare, and federal employees’ future retirement benefits—already exceed $86.8 trillion, or 550% of GDP. While our liabilities are drowning America they are once again engineering and forcing yet one more government managed entitlement program to the pile. Tell me again Mr Clinton, who is “begging for America to fail”?
