The president sat down with NBA Hall Of Famer, Charles Barkley, during the league’s All-Star weekend for an interview that was aired Sunday. During the 6-minute question-and-answer program, Obama was asked, “what do you think of the term ObamaCare?”
Obama fully embraced the term, saying, “I like it. I don’t mind. I tell you, five years from now when everybody’s saying, ‘man, I’m sure glad we got health care,’ there will be a bunch of people that don’t call it ObamaCare because they don’t want me to get credit.”
As always – it’s all about Obama:
Well yes – obviously. ObamaCare is so awesome, Obama has to keep unilaterally delaying portions of it so the American people don’t get too spoiled all at once.
The president wasn’t asked about the potential taxpayer-funded bailouts of health insurance companies or the looming Medicare Advantage cuts to “a whole bunch of” current beneficiaries. No doubt, he would give someone else the credit for that.
