According to Ron Paul, the only way that Obamacare will go away is if it self-destructs.
Appearing on Fox News’ Stuart Varney on Thursday, the former Republican presidential candidate said that the healthcare bill will “eventually end because it’s such a disaster.”
Varney asked if “the end of activist government” is coming due to the fact that millions have lost insurance due to Obamacare.
Paul responded, “I wish. No, there’s a lot of diehards out there. There’ll be excuses made and politicians will spend it a certain way. But it’ll eventually end because it’s such a disaster. This a sign that the delivery of healthcare will even be worse than signing up for the healthcare.”
Paul said that even if Obamacare eventually self-destructs, its cost will be “huge.” He said, “It’s going to be a tax, and the quality of care and what people are going to get — everybody’s tells me, ‘They’re canceling me, they’re charging me more, I’m getting less,’ and they’re furious. It’s going to be the biggest political issue in this year’s campaign.”
He concluded, “The only way it’s going to disappear quickly is if it totally self-destructs, which is conceivable… One day it’s going to be so bad, people are just going to opt out on their own.”
