Lefty Bill Maher has turned on ObamaCare.
Friday night, the standup comedian told his HBO audience that the President’s Affordable Care Act is not affordable and is confusing, and that it’s scary because some people have given up trying to buy health care insurance at all.
“Obamacare: You know it’s the signature achievement of obviously this president and like many liberals I’ve been screaming how great it has been and ‘it’s working’ and ‘there’s no doubt,’” Maher said on his HBO show “Real Time.” …
“But The New York Times on Sunday did an article that basically said, you know, when Obama said if you like your plan nothing will change — well, everything has changed,” Maher said. “46 percent of people are having trouble paying health care costs now, up 10 percent from a year ago because the deductibles went the up, the co-pays went up. They can’t see the doctor they used to see because he’s in a different network. They go to get questions answered and they’re talking to somebody reading a script in the Philippines. It’s like your prostate cancer is being handled by Comcast now.”
“The most frightening thing in this article is when somebody said ‘it’s so confusing, I’ve just stopped seeing a doctor’ — and that’s going on a lot, apparently,” Maher later added. “People are just not going because it’s more expensive, too confusing and I think this was intentional. I think the insurance companies wanted this to happen because that’s how they make money. ” [Video]
Epiphany! The New York Times gets it right, for once, and Bill Maher reads it!
Notice that Maher is using the plural pronoun “they” a lot in his rant, as though this is happening to someone else.
That’s probably because it is happening to someone else; Bill still has his doctor. Like the politicians who caused this train wreck, Bill doesn’t have to enroll in ObamaCare.
Remember when Maher said that Obama didn’t lie when he said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? When he said Obama just “evolved on honesty”?
Har Har Har!
So it’s easy to make jokes, when you’re not the one who can’t keep your doctor… or even find a doctor.
But Maher has a solution to make things better for you prols and serfs who have to put up with this nonsense.
Weinstein wraps it up…
But Maher isn’t quite warming to conservative alternatives just because he is having second thoughts about the success of Obamacare.
“We should have a single payer system,” he said.
Just turn your whole lives over to the government from cradle-to-grave, and then you’ll be able to keep your doctor and your hospital.
Wait. No, you won’t.
But maybe they’ll let you live.
