For the standard-issue gaffe, one normally looks to Vice President Joe Biden, but this week he’s girl-watching in Ukraine, so we’ll stick with Barack Obama for today. Politico reports that Obama accidentally told the truth about ObamaCare in a speech at Childrens National Medical Center in Washington Monday. In the speech, he explained that ObamaCare would work a lot like the VA and the Indian Health Service:
Would health care reform bring “greater inefficiencies” to the country’s health care system?
That’s exactly what Obama said Monday when he spoke about health care reform at the Childrens National Medical Center in Washington.
“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system,” Obama said in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers. “And greater stability and security to America’s families and businesses.”
The White House inserted a [sic] in the official transcript. I’m not sure why. It may be the most honest thing Obama has said yet about ObamaCare.
