Obamacare Imploding, Clinton Pushes For Gov’t Take Over

Obamacare exchanges are imploding nationwide, and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is pushing for a government-run public option as a solution to the failing healthcare system.

It’s hard to imagine a situation in which Obamacare could get any worse: 16 healthcare co-ops have gone under, the Tennessee Health Commissioner is saying the state’s Obamacare exchanges are “very near collapse,” and analysts can’t even fathom a positive future for the system in either the short or long term.

Hillary Clinton is now addressing these problems on the national campaign stage. She says she will “defend and expand” Obamacare, according to Clinton’s campaign website. Her solution to the mass exodus of insurance companies from the failing exchanges across the nation is to institute a full-scale “public option.”

A public option would essentially “be a government-sponsored and government-run insurance plan, probably modeled on the traditional Medicare program, which would be offered to customers on the exchanges as an alternative to the private-insurance plans,” according to AEI.
