Geraldo Rivera: Obamacare Doubled My Health Insurance Costs
Journalist sounds off on ‘Affordable Care Act’

Journalist Geraldo Rivera told the Alex Jones Show that although he supports the idea of free health care, his health insurance costs have more than doubled as a result of Obamacare.
“Half a dozen people work for me….and my health insurance for all those people has more than doubled in the last two years,” said Rivera, adding, “I can’t think that it’s not related to Obamacare.”
Rivera remarked that he was actually “socialist enough” to support universal healthcare but that Obamacare merely provided a monopoly for the insurance industry.
“Why is Congress not participating in the same kind of system as everybody else?,” asked Rivera, referring to an exemption that members of Congress and their staff will receive that will hand them generous subsidies from their employer to pay for their health insurance.
Asserting that Obama had failed to govern in the midst of a government shut down, Rivera said the President has been “a terrible manager” and “hasn’t in any way reached out in a way he should,” quoting John Boehner’s lament that Obama has agreed to negotiate with the Iranians but not with the Republicans.
Despite the White House claiming that Obamacare will be “affordable” for Americans, complaints about soaring costs and lower quality have raged.
As Infowars documented last week, large insurance companies have seen their stock prices surge since Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010. By working with the Obama administration to force Americans into buying lower quality health insurance at higher prices, corporate giants like Blue Cross Blue Shield and United Healthcare are laughing all the way to the bank.
As Senator Max Baucus confirmed when Obamacare was passed, the genesis of the bill was an “87-page document which became the basis, the foundation, the blueprint from which almost all health care measures in all bills on both sides of the aisle came.”
And who wrote that 87-page white paper? None other than Liz Fowler – who in the two years before the bill was passed and while she was writing the “foundation” for Obamacare, was simultaneously working as Vice President of WellPoint - one of the largest health insurance companies in America.
Baucus profusely thanked Fowler for being personally responsible for crafting Obamacare. Politico described her as a “major player” in getting the bill passed.
Applicants attempting to access Obamacare exchange websites ran into a multitude of problems earlier today, with users in numerous states unable to reach domains that couldn’t cope with the surge of traffic.
