Krauthammer: ObamaCare Doesn’t Help the Uninsured
Krauthammer: ObamaCare Doesn’t Help the Uninsured, But Un-Insures the Insured By Making the System Broke
Commenting on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s message to Democrats that they should be willing to sacrifice their jobs in order to get health care passed, political commentator Dr. Charles Krauthammer said that it’s easy for her and President Obama to give such a statement since the San Francisco congresswoman sits in a safe seat, and the president doesn’t face reelection for another couple of years.
Nevertheless, it is not Pelosi that wavering Democrats should be listening to for advice on whether to vote for the health care bill, Krauthammer advised, but billionaire investor Warren Buffett, “who said the bill is not a good one because it doesn’t contain costs.”
As Krauthammer noted, Buffett added that “we have an obligation to insure the uninsured.”
“However,” Krauthammer said, “if the system is insolvent and you don’t fix it, you’re not gonna help the uninsured. In fact, you’re gonna end up un-insuring the insuredbecause those who depend on Medicare and Medicaid are going to be left with a system that is broke.”

Krauthammer scores again. He gets to the meat of the matter and points out that this very costly Democrat health bill will hurt those who presently have insurance.
He also points out that Pelosi and obama can talk about political sacrifice because they are both safe this election cycle.

Tom, your right, the only complaint Pelosi has had from her voters is that she has not always been far enough to the left. Hard to imagine that to be even further left but that was what they complained about in one of their protests.
