Obama Opposed Individual Mandate

leave a comment »

A blast from the past: In 2008, Obama told audiences on the Ellen DeGeneres show that

… forcing the uninsured to buy health insurance … would be like forcing the homeless to buy homes.

At the time, he was campaigning against Hillary Clinton.

… she mandates that everybody buy health care. She’d have the government force every individual to buy insurance and I don’t have such a mandate because I don’t think the problem is that people don’t want health insurance, it’s that they can’t afford it …

No one has ever convicted Obama of being consistent. Or perhaps it is the case that his position on that issue has evolved.
