The Top 10 Worst Quotes Pushing ObamaCare

10. Don’t Believe the ‘Noise’ About Not Being Able to Keep Your Healthcare Plan

9. You Seniors Are Going to Like ObamaCare

8. If Only Stupid Public Realized How Great ObamaCare Is
“The history of big social legislation like this is that there is this period before it kicks in, before people get used to the benefits, where there’s a lot of anxiety....There’s a lot of anxiety in the public, but there’s not a sense of all the good things that could come.”
— New York Times correspondent Matt Bai on ABC’s This Week, April 1, 2012.

7. Yes We Did...Ruin America’s Health Care System
“Yes, we did.....Without this concrete achievement, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi kept warning her troops, Democrats would have been stuck with their votes for reform bills and nothing to show for them. The real and imagined flaws of their proposed system would have been hung around their necks, yet they would have had no way of demonstrating its advantages. With success comes the chance to defend what is, in many of its particulars, the sort of plan a majority of Americans said they wanted. Yes, it is imperfect and it won’t come cheap. But it fills a gaping hole in the American social insurance system. It affords protections that Americans had long hoped for against insurance-company practices that could deny them coverage. It also grants the security of knowing that sickness would not carry the threat of bankruptcy....By temperament, the president is more a consensus builder than a warrior. But he is also a practical man who wants to accomplish big things. On Sunday, he did just that on health care, and he earned a place in history.”
— Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne in a March 22, 2010 column.

6. Just Wait Until Public Sees How Much ObamaCare is Going to Benefit Them
“On health care — that’s partly a failure of communication, it seem to me. How do you go a year and a half where so many Americans don’t even understand the benefits of this legislation when they apply to them?”
— New York Times columnist Tom Friedman on NBC’s Meet the Press, April 1, 2012.

5. NBC Doc: If We Don’t Get ObamaCare Passed We’re Not Going to be ‘A Great World Power’
“As a physician, you know, I felt like I understood the complexity of the problem. As an American citizen, I was rooting for the President to hit a home run....We’re going to pay big time if we don’t get this [Obama’s health care plan]. I don’t think we’re going to be a great world power.”
— NBC medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman on a special edition of MSNBC’s Hardball following President Obama’s July 22, 2009 press conference.

4. ObamaCare Will Reduce the Deficit!
“The Senate Finance Committee said today it will vote on its reform plan next week, and according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the plan costs less than expected and would actually reduce the deficit. So why do Republicans still oppose it?”
— Fill-in anchor Maggie Rodriguez on the CBS Evening News, October 8, 2009.

3. Once Morons ‘Understand’ ObamaCare, They’ll Be Thrilled
“A lot of people are going to like [the health care bill] a whole lot once they see what’s in it. For the first time, it’s got some long-term care in it, which everybody is desperate for as the population gets older. It’s paid for, totally paid-for long-term care insurance. So, I think that there’s a lot in the bill that people are going to like. It’s just a question of understanding it.”
— ABC’s Cokie Roberts on This Week, December 20, 2009.

2. Failure to Uphold ObamaCare = Death Sentence for Toddler
CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen: “These nine Supreme Court Justices will forever affect the life of 3-year-old Violet McManus. [to Julie Walters, Violet’s mother] Are you worried about what the Supreme Court might do?”
Julie Walters: “I’m really scared. Very scared. Like, ‘I can’t sleep’ scared.”
Cohen: “Violet’s mother, Julie, knows if the Justices overturn health care reform, Violet will lose her health insurance. [to Walters] Tell me why it’s scary for you.”
Walters: “Our daughter could die and there’s nothing we can do about it.”
— CNN Newsroom, March 27, 2012.

1. Ignore Republican Lies: ObamaCare Is Best Thing in 50 Years
“[Republicans] have spent their summer running around the country at town halls lying about ObamaCare. I’m not going to let them off the hook....Make no mistake. ObamaCare saves lives and it is good for America. You know, so much of what we see in the news is negative. But you know what? It’s not negative. This is the most positive thing that this country has done since the civil rights legislation that was passed back in the ’60s. And, of course, we know they’re trying to go after that, too.”
— Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, August 26, 2013.
