After spending years defending Barack Obama’s massively failing Obamacare law, the media is now left sputtering trying to figure out why Obamacare premiums are soaring. But NBC’s Andrea Mitchell has already moved beyond explaining rate hikes and into simply dismissing them as no big deal.
For Mitchell, the massive hike in the already unaffordable Obamacare health insurance costs is just a “nagging problem” for the Hillary Clinton campaign as we go into the election only weeks from now, according to Newsbusters.com.
During “NBC Nightly News” for October 25, Mitchell discussed the campaign for president and noted that Clinton has only two “nagging problems” as she cruises to a landslide victory against the hated Donald Trump.
One “nagging problem” is the latest WikiLeaks revelations that show despite his lies to the opposite, Barack Obama did, indeed, know that Hillary had a private email server hidden in her house against America’s national security laws. And the other “nagging problem” was the massive hikes in healthcare costs that Obama and his media cohorts all said would never happen.
“A second problem, the rise in Obamacare premiums, an issue Trump is exploiting,” Mitchell said.
Notice how Mitchell also carefully characterized Obama’s massive failure as something the evil Trump is “exploiting” as if it could be dismissed merely because Trump is using it as a campaign talking point.
Of course, this rise in healthcare costs is far from a “nagging problem.” In fact, it is yet another example of how Barack Obama blatantly lied about his healthcare plan as he sold it to the American people.
You may recall that as he stumped for the law and later as he defended it, Obama insisted that healthcare costs would go down and that Americans would actually save $2,500 per family. In fact, premiums have risen for nearly everyone and even the liberal Washington Post “fact checker” rated it as a lie when Obama claimed that premiums would go down.
Obama’s signature healthcare law has been tanking all across the country, too. Recently Nebraska Obamacare enrollees saw premiums rise as high as 50 percent. In another study on the law it was seen that small businesses have seen costs rise in some cases up to 400%!
Of course, that is far from the only lie Obama told to get Obamacare passed. Remember how we could “keep our doctors if we liked them”? Yeah. Not so much.
