Obamacare is Collapsing, and Hilary Pleads the Fifth

Obamacare is in its predicted death spiral, and only a big taxpayer bailout can save it. Whether taxpayers agree to the bailout or not.


Meanwhile, Hillary won't talk about Obamcare any more.

A look at transcripts of Clinton stump speeches since she kicked off the general election campaign on Labor Day finds the Democratic candidate almost never talks about Obamacare. She doesn't promise to expand it. She doesn't promise to protect it. She doesn't extol its benefits. She just doesn't mention it.

There's no doubt Obamacare is in trouble. Enrollment in the exchanges has fallen far short of projections. The purchasers of policies have turned out to be older, and in need of more care, than expected. Major insurers are pulling out of the exchanges altogether. Premiums are going up. Deductibles are skyrocketing, meaning many are left to pay most of their healthcare costs themselves.

...

On her website, Clinton proposes to "defend and expand the Affordable Care Act." She promises a public option, as well as a version of Medicare for all.

But she hasn't been saying that on the stump in the general election campaign. Instead, when Clinton speaks of healthcare, she speaks of making it affordable, as if there were not already a massive, coercive and far-reaching law called the Affordable Care Act. It's as if Obamacare never happened.

York tallies up her sporadic and ambiguous references to health care at the link.
