Dems to GOP: Help us fix ObamaCare


This is rich. From The Hill,

Democrats are beginning to talk about changing ObamaCare to fix what they acknowledge are growing problems in the law’s insurance marketplaces.

Insurers have been dropping out of ObamaCare or hiking their premiums this year due to financial losses, fueling Republican criticism of the law ahead of the November elections.

While Democrats are pushing back at the GOP attacks, they are also expressing hope that Republicans will work with them to make fixes to the law when the new Congress convenes in 2017.
It brings more than a few things to mind. One is the constant criticism towards anyone every suggesting any change to Obamacare. This reaction is as good as any over the past few years

Asked about today’s events, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters, “Republicans are poised to host another vote in the United States Congress today for the 60th time to repeal Obamacare. It’s almost like it’s Groundhog Day, except today it is actually Groundhog Day and they’re doing it again.”
 Democrats have acted as if the ACA is the Torah, unalterable. Except of course, when they want to change it.

The other reaction I have is, "Told you so."

And the last reaction?  I'll let President Obama handle that one.
