Democratic Rep. Tim Walz from Minnesota finally admitted to his constituents what most of us have known now for years: Obamacare is a complete and utter failure.Walz made his confession last month, stating he was going against the Democratic National Convention’s message since the party was taking serious heat for the legislation and the extreme increase in premiums that have happened as a result.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:Rep. Tim Walz (D., Minn.) admitted last month that Obamacare was failing his constituents and went against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in the process.
Walz, who voted in favor of Obamacare, is now running for governor in Minnesota. In a video from last month, Walz claimed that he went against the DNC by saying that he was not going to tout the party’s message on Obamacare as Democrats were under fire for the law.
“The DNC wanted the message to be the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is working fine and don’t talk about the warts,” Walz said. “I said I can’t do that because it’s failing my constituents in a lot of ways.”Walz’s home state of Minnesota has been hit pretty hard by the ACA, as the health insurance market there is close to collapsing. It was predicted by experts back in the fall of 2016 that insurance premiums would skyrocket from 50 percent all the way up to 67 percent.
Obamacare failed Americans in many ways, though some of the biggest included making health insurance less affordable, and inaccessible; and also placing a devastating burden on the shoulders of business owners.
Small businesses have been forced to pass on the increased cost of running their companies by raising prices on goods and services, as well as laying off employees and putting off expansions.It seems like Main Street is getting that message across to at least one Democratic lawmaker.
