Then he is even more disconnected from the American people than I previously thought, something I didn’t think was possible. The American people told him for months they didn’t want his health care reforms. They crowded into town halls and marched in the streets but he and the Democrats forced ObamaCare down their throats anyway. And now he says he’s surprised by the political costs? What did he think the American people meant when they shouted and carried signs that said, “Remember in November!”
President Barack Obama says the political cost of overhauling the health care system turned out to be higher than he had expected. And he admits that he gets discouraged at times when dealing with the economy.
In an interview airing Sunday night on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Obama said the health care system itself is huge and complicated and that changing it eluded previous presidents because it was so difficult.
“I made the decision to go ahead and do it, and it proved as costly politically as we expected — probably actually a little more costly than we expected, politically,” he said.
Egad. What a mess he’s made of things all because of his arrogance and ego.
