Obama: I Don't Think Politicians Should Control Your Health Care

President Obama is slowly starting to mention Obamacare and its takeover of the health care system on the campaign trail. He knows it's only popular with radical liberals, and is therefore hesitant to mention it because over 70% of Americans want the law repealed. Last week at a campaign stop in Colorado, Obama tried to define the law and how health care in America should be. He mentioned that politicians shouldn't control the care people get, which is exactly what happens in Obamacare.
Here's the quote:
No, this wasn't the moron Joe Biden making one of his boner comments on the campaign trail. It was almost as if Obama didn't read his own health care law! Oh wait, he likely hasn't. All he knew is that the government was going to control the health care industry, which was good enough for him. What's so ironic is the line where he says that politicians shouldn't control the care an individual gets - Obamacare puts health care control in the hands of politicians!
Whether it's IPAB, which is a board of unelected bureaucrats that monitor and limit costs of Medicare, or HHS forcing individuals to purchase health insurance or be fined. Here's an interesting perspective on politicians being involved in Obamacare from The Washington Examiner:
We're going to side with the belief that Barack Obama never read the most transformative bill that was rammed into law in American history. The government, politicians and unelected bureaucrats are at the core of Obamacare and forcing the individual to confirm to their perverted view of how a health care system should function.
