Default Neil Cavuto Shreds Obama, Trying To Blame Fox News For His Terrible ACA

Yesterday, 0bama was going around giving rambling, stuttering campaign speeches to try and sell his horrible healthcare plan, by blaming Fox News. It was not Fox News that made all those Utopian claims about 0bamaCare lowering health care premiums, and then the reality is they are skyrocketing.

The average policy under ACA is $328. I'd love for someone, anyone, to tell me how those living paycheck to paycheck are going to find $328 to pay for health insurance? There are literally millions of American households who are not living in poverty but are unable to pay yet another monthly bill, no matter how helpful or noble it is.

I've yet to find someone who will explain away this very real scenario.

Does no one else think a sitting President sniveling about a news organization like they're the Boogey Man is just a little unseemly? The lamestream media's been stroking their messiah so long he can't take critical analysis like a grown up.

You get tax credits based on your income. I think that point has been made at least 5000 times here. Memory malfunction perhaps?

Oh, and I'm glad to see that Republicans suddenly care about low-income Americans. That was a pretty quick turnaround, wasn't it.

lets be fair, I don't think premiums are skyrocketing, but it is a complete failure, and I have to wonder why Democrats don't want to fix the problems in it..

Things like limiting hours, nothing to cut costs, etc.

But yet 30,000,000 are expected to go without.. Why exactly do you think that is?

Obama just loves low-income Americans. He must: He's creating more and more of them every day.

Isn't that $328 per person, not per family?

Cavuto is started to get scared that Obamacare will not be repealed and as folks understand the law better and benefit from it, they will like it. The right-wingers are starting to freak out. I love it.

Those living living paycheck-to-paycheck are subsidized. So, one is earning at the poverty rate, for a family of 4, the premium is $1,129 per year.
