He sure did, John. You saw the moment of hesitation when he almost said that under his scheme, people could still choose the high-deductible plan. But then he realized — you could see the wheels turning — oh no, they can’t! Obama simply doesn’t want to give Americans the choice. He knows best how everyone should insure themselves. So the federal government will set a “baseline” — the ObamaCare mandate to tell you what care you need. That will load up insurance with all sorts of required care, every type of treatment, and much additional expense. It was the moment, I think, when those still awake would say, “Hey, this really is a government takeover of insurance.” Obama, of course, was arguing just the opposite. But he either doesn’t understand or isn’t willing to admit the implications of his own policies.
