Bill Clinton criticized President Barack Obama's signature policy reform Monday while on the stump for his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, calling Obamacare "the craziest thing in the world." But he attempted to temper his criticism at a Tuesday rally.

Speaking at a Democratic rally in Flint, Michigan, the former president ripped into the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for flooding the health care insurance market and causing premiums to rise for middle-class Americans who do not qualify for subsidies.

I saw Bill Clinton's comments on Obamacare, and I thought he was right. What do you think?

Clinton correctly pointed out how Obamacare is hurting middle class people while helping the poor. I thought it was wonderful of him to be honest about it, but it seemed odd that he would be so honest.

Does it surprise you that Bill Clinton would be so honest then try to take his comments back? Does all this give us hope that Obamacare will be reformed under Hillary Clinton?

Bill Clinton saying it then "walking it back" is a different topic.

a reply to: Phage

I searched for "Clinton" not "Hillary." I guess I should have searched for "child."

During WWII we had to bomb the French railroads to stop the Germans. Something like 30K French civilians died. Heartbreaking indeed but the Germans getting control of that rail system would have been 100X worse.

My point is that Obama saved the few with the ACA and hurt the many. He truly did and I agree with Bill; it crippled the middle class and upper middle financially. Not only that, it crippled healthcare for everyone. Before, making an appointment with a specialists may have take a couple of weeks. Now, it can take months! Months of more people suffering and dying than ever before and only getting worse. There are not enough doctors to treat the influx of patients. The first order of business should have been to prepare for this influx but it was never addressed. Just like the website roll out. Any IT Program Manager could have looked at the build of the system and could have easily determined it could not handle that much traffic. It's IT management 101. I knew the ACA would turn into a utter mess just based off the website launch. No long range planning. Just get it up and and pander to people until they finally accept the reality that there is nothing they can do about it.

Why is former House speaker John Boehner so sure ObamaCare can't be repealed?

He's said this multiple times...as recently as 7.21.2017. Strange.
