At the Clinton Globalist Initiative Forum in New York City, President Obama referred to his signature healthcare law as “universal coverage.” Here is what the president said: “You’ve had is an unprecedented effort that you’ve seen ramp up in the past month or so that those who have opposed the idea of universal health care in the first place — and have fought this thing tooth and nail through Congress and through the courts — trying to scare and discourage people from getting a good deal.” In combination with the “individual mandate,” the government is quite frankly taking over the health insurance industry by creating as much havoc as possible and then forcing people onto government subsidies.
