Uh-oh … has Michael Moore lost that lovin’ feeling?
In a recent New York Times op-ed, the hardcore lefty took Obamacare to task, bemoaning the ACA’s “rocky start,” which includes “clueless planning, a lousy website, insurance companies raising rates, and the president’s telling people they could keep their coverage when, in fact, not all could.”
Amen! But don’t be congratulating Moore on his bout with common sense just yet. You see, according to him, Obamacare still has a shot at redemption:
The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go. When right-wing critics “expose” the fact that President Obama endorsed a single-payer system before 2004, they’re actually telling the truth.
Single-payer will save us all!
All eyes are on Vermont’s plan for a single-payer system, starting in 2017. If it flies, it will change everything, with many states sure to follow suit by setting up their own versions. That’s why corporate money will soon flood into Vermont to crush it. The legislators who’ll go to the mat for this will need all the support they can get: If you live east of the Mississippi, look up the bus schedule to Montpelier.
So let’s get started. Obamacare can’t be fixed by its namesake. It’s up to us to make it happen.
Michael Moore, ladies and gentlemen. When it comes to outright leftist idiocy, he’s in a class by himself.
