Michael Moore: "ObamaCare is Awful," Yet "A Godsend"

Michael Moore, the habitual liar, has taken to the New York Times to declare that “Obamacare is awful,” yet also a "godsend." Writing an article in the NYT, entitled “The Obamacare we deserve,” Moore denounced the President’s signature legislation, then encouraged it.

The law's awfulness is the Left's "dirty little secret," Moore says. He continued that, instead of righteously blaming "corporations" for much of the problems, Democrats instead over-promised and under-delivered.

Eventually, Moore reveals the law's "fatal flaw:"
I believe Obamacare’s rocky start — clueless planning, a lousy website, insurance companies raising rates, and the president’s telling people they could keep their coverage when, in fact, not all could — is a result of one fatal flaw: The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go.

Moore then complains about exploding insurance costs and how the idea for ObamaCare originated.

In classic Moore style, however, he begins talking out of the other side of his mouth just a few sentences later when he states, unironically, "Obamacare is a godsend." He explains that he knows of people, previously uninsured, who now have coverage.

And more important to Moore: it is also a stepping stone for his ultimate desire: universal, single-payer, government-controlled health care. "In blue states, let’s lobby for a public option on the insurance exchange — a health plan run by the state government, rather than a private insurer," he advises.

Moore finishes his op-ed declaring that people need to push their politicians to supporting increasing government control over their health care.
