NEW YORK — President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton took to the same stage Tuesday to promote the new health care law that Obama championed after Clinton's own efforts to reform health care years earlier fell flat.

Obama has said the goal is to make health care more affordable while extending coverage to millions of people who don't have it. ****************** This statement alone shows what a failure obamacare is and will be.

I would feel a lot more comfortable if they and their families were on the same plans as the rest of us.

My mother who is 93 just received her new policy with a 15% increase in costs thanks to Obamacare. Others will see a similar result. Our best hope is to throw out the Dems next year and develop a Canadian style system with a few modifications. No one at this time should believe anything these two guys state. One lied under oath and was impeached, and the other should be.

As long as it's good enough for all levels of politicians, including the president and any/all past presidents and the unions, without any exemptions/exceptions, then it will be good enough for the American Taxpaying Citizen. Until that time, it just ain't good enough!

I agree with several here...our politicians should have the same plan. As far as the efficacy of the plan, I don't think anyone here really knows. And it is not like the gop is a about to stop protecting their CEO/MD cronies to change the status quo. I am sure the system is far from perfect, but the prez took a gop plan and implemented it. They weren't about to after realizing how much it would cost their HMO exec friends...

Medicare plans are not part of Obamacare, so you can stop blaming it for any increases. BTW, Medicare for all would have been wonderful, but the Republicans wouldn't even consider it.

Both of them are nothing but narcissists. The whole world revolves around their thoughts and gracious insight? I don't think so and there is a strongly growing population of people tired of listening to these fools. Just another "grandstand" on tax payer dollars. Wake up people! How much longer do we have to listen to the Clinton's? Do you really want another government sponge Clinton in office in 16??? And Obama is or will or at least become, the worst president in history. We are a far cry from away from our roots. ...... Shame on us.

Obamacare expands medicare to many that are not eligible now. And, Even some of the democrats voted against universal care. So to blame on party when BOTH parties were against it is just plain partisan.
