As president, he signed into law a bill that violates both of these promises. The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) gives the federal government the authority to tell every American what insurance they must have, where they will get it and what they will pay for it. Moreover, even as it violates another campaign promise ("if you’re in a plan you like, you can keep it"), the most optimistic estimate expects 23 million people will remain...
The odds of ever getting rid of this ridiculous monstrosity called BarackwardsCare dropped significantly with Roberts ruling. Republicans now have to play their cards in the right order, at the right time. Sometime before the election, they need to present to the American people, unassailable plans for a far better healthcare system. They need to promise America, that if they can get rid of enough Dems in the Senate and take back the WH, they will pass it. If this plan is good enough, even a couple of Dem Senators, facing re-election in two years will vote to get rid of Barackwards Care. (I like that word, DG)
When Barack Obama was a candidate for president, he endorsed universal health insurance, but opposed forcing individuals to buy their own insurance.
