Obama Breaks Silence, TRASHES Republicans For Pathetic Obamacare Repeal Efforts (VIDEO)

While the majority of Americans are absolutely sickened and frustrating with the Republican Party’s relentless agenda to repeal and replace Obamacare, there’s no one that must be more annoyed by this than the man who is responsible for health care reform – former President Barack Obama.

Over his two terms in the White House, Obama had to listen to Republicans b*tch and moan about Obamacare, despite the fact that they had nothing better to offer (and still don’t). Even though every new bill they’ve put forth has failed miserably and Americans overwhelmingly approve of Obamacare, the GOP hasn’t given up and Donald Trump has been more than happy to help. This has definitely taken a toll and earlier today, Obama finally broke his silence and trashed the GOP for its outrageous agenda to ruin health care for Americans.

Speaking at a Gates Foundation event, Obama talked about the new Graham-Cassidy bill, the latest in the GOP’s attempts to repeal Obamacare. Making fun of the fact that the Republican party seems to be taking issue with a health care law that is clearly working, Obama joked that other countries are trying to understand “what’s the controversy here. He said, “I am too.”

Obama then admitted that there are still “things that need to be fixed” with Obamacare, but made sure to rip the GOP for coming up with something far more disastrous:

When I see people trying to undo that progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage or roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions––the cancer survivor, the expecting mom, or the child with autism or asthma––for whom coverage once again would be almost unattainable, it is aggravating.”

“It frustrates, and it’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.”

Spoken like a true leader who actually cares about American lives – a quality that our current POTUS does not have.
