savage dragon and spider-man number one health care Barack Obama signed in the Affordable Care Act also called Obama care in March 2010 it became the most significant health care reform since Medicaid and Medicare were created in 1965 it caused millions of Americans to become insured uninsured percentages dropped from 16 percent to eight point nine percent from early to in 2016 about 70% of people who received subsidies to help pay for insurance only spent about $70 per month for coverage for employers the increase in health care costs began to slow down this reform also helped improve the income inequality problem in the United States higher taxes were placed on the 5% top earners and subsidies help lower-income people tremendously however although there were many beliefs to Obamacare there were also some downfalls not all states had to adopt Medicaid so there were several places where it wasn't offered to adults with any income level if they didn't have children there was also some controversy concerning Obama statements before the Affordable Care Act went into effect on several occasions he said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan however as the laws concerning coverage changed he was unable to keep this promise hope you enjoyed the video don't forget to like comment and subscribe and

  1. Barack Obama was not born in Honolulu Hawaii, his mother was about to give birth so she was unable to catch the flight to Honolulu and gave birth in Kenya. After his birth they flew back to Hawaii.

  2. POTUS44 Worst President with Legacy of Hate! Archives may follow Obama to Gitmo for his anti America, anti Blue lives matter, pro Iran Deal; gave billions$; sale of 20% USA uranium to Russia, ISIS, Fast&Furious guns to Mexican drug cartel, resurgence of racism, Chicago murders!

  3. First, Obama isn't "BLACK" he is African. Black is a term coined by Black Americans who are descendants of American slaves, NOT Jamaican, Haitian, Somalian, Nigerian, etc but American period. If you can distinguish between a British and a Russian or German person then please do the same with us. I don't care what Obama want to call himself he knows he doesn't have a drop of black American slave blood in him.

  4. Obama is the worst fake president. He is not even an American. He was born in Kenya. Michelle is really Michael. He called her that at an interview and covered it up pretty fast. I wouldn’t give two cents if the both decided to leave the country.


  6. Nothing about his ties to the weather underground terrorists, his ties to Louis Farrakhan and the nation of islam, his staunch support of the anti-American mullahs in Iran, or his general hatred of white people. One would think you're biased or something. Unsubbed and disliked.

  7. He had a transgender babysitter when he was 8 years old? Ahh that explains his love for men who dress up like a woman.

  8. This is the really truth about Barry Saweto. Woman you are a dumb fact checker. Get the real info here.

  9. NPC produced information. LOL, this is funniest thing I've seen today, no worries to the NPC producers I'm sure another NPC will top this today and take the title of the funniest thing I've seen today.

  10. You forgot to mention that Barak Obama was the worst president in American history, it was 8 years of hell during his presidency.

  11. So I see this is a fictional clip. Born in Hawaii? Yeah, if he was born there, so was I. NOT. He's the WORST
    President we ever had and Trump is still trying to clean up the mess he made! Was this clip paid for by
    George Soros?

  12. If you're going to interpret what the name Barack means you should also reveal that it also was the name of Muhammed''s spirit horse, the Islamic "blessed one," which allegedly flew him across vast distances overnight. I.E. It is from Arabic mythology.
