As recently as last March, Brazile was enthusiastically promoting Obamacare on Twitter.
What’s on your menu? Just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer!

This one’s a toughie because as you may remember, Obama made extremely optimistic predictions regarding healthcare premiums under Obamacare, and we all know this president would never lie:
Yeah, who was hoodwinking who, there?
See Jim Geraghty at The Campaign spot for The ‘Good Answer’ on Rising Health Insurance Premiums:
I guess it depends upon your definition of a “good” answer. Once Obamacare requires insurance companies to cover preexisting conditions, kids under 26, birth control pills and so on, the companies will cover those costs by… raising premiums for all customers.
So that’s a “good answer” in the sense of explaining the situation. But I guess if you’re a fan of Obamacare, it’s not really a good answer.
Who would have ever guessed such a crazy thing!
