Ben Domenech, the Heartland Institute’s Senior Budget and Healthcare expert, joined the panel on Blaze TV Tuesday to discuss Bill Clinton’s comments in an interview on ozy.com regarding Obamacare. While it has been official Democrats are weaning on their ardent support for the Affordable Care Act, Clinton called on President Obama to honor his statement that citizens had the option to keep their health care plans, even if it meant changing the law.
Proceeding on the premise of the fix-it approach, Ben Domenech asserts that allowing people to keep their health care plans would be virtually impossible at this point. States such as California have pushed major private health care companies out, as we have seen with Aetna. Bill Clinton’s comments show a breaking away from the Clintons and Obama’s budding friendship. This platform is now paving the way for potential 2016 Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton to sweep in and save the day.
