Political strategist Dick Morris says the fact that President Barack Obama did nothing more than issue a written statement to mark the fourth anniversary of his healthcare reform law on Sunday is telling.
“It explains how radioactive healthcare is when he’d rather talk about his humiliation and inaction in the Ukraine as opposed to the anniversary of his signature achievement, healthcare. The fact is that he’s running as far away from healthcare as he can,” he told Newsmax TV’s John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Monday.
As for the president’s conveniently traveling to Europe and being out of the country on the Obamacare anniversary, Morris said, “He’s out of the country so much. If you look at the last two months, there have been probably 30 statements from the White House on everything other than healthcare: minimum wage, overtime, making college affordable, student loans being applied for everybody, food labeling, nutrition, every aspect of the labor law in terms of unionization.”
“There are so many specific announcements he’s made in an industrial park in Chicago, another one in Detroit, that have nothing to do with healthcare. His sole goal now is to get people to focus on something other than healthcare, but he can’t because healthcare is unraveling in each of our own particular lives.
