Breaking -- Obama-supporter Warren Buffett: Scrap ObamaCare and Start Over!
.

You know things are bad for President Obama when even Warren Buffett has soured on Obamacare and says that "we need something else."

"Healthcare costs in the United States are like a tapeworm eating at our economic body.

Those words come from famed investor Warren Buffett, who said he would scrap Obamacare and start all over.

"'We have a health system that, in terms of costs, is really out of control,' he added. 'And if you take this line and you project what has been happening into the future, we will get less and less competitive. So we need something else.'

"Buffett insists that without changes to Obamacare average citizens will suffer.

"'What we have now is untenable over time,' said Buffett, an early supporter of President Obama. 'That kind of a cost compared to the rest of the world is really like a tapeworm eating, you know, at our economic body.'

Warren just figured out how much Obamacare was going to cost him...

He could give two shits about what this does to "average" Americans...

Every liberal idea fails due to "unintended consequences", as the useful idiots believe. However, the supposed "failure" was absolutely planned, but they say that to avoid the blame.

Got that right. You have to wonder, though, what the hell did the Great Omaha Oracle think was gonna happen with ObamaCare? I would think Berkshire would have some fairly decent economists on staff. Forcing coverage on people who don't want it and mandating pre-existing conditions be covered is obviously disastrous to anybody with a little bit of common sense, much less an advanced economics degree.

Or, maybe, this is just the setup to move to single payer. We always figured they would "discover," at some point, that their little insurance industry reforms would fail, and they would move to get everyone on "free" government insurance.

Our insurance is provided by my husbands employer... There were many articles that warned that Ohio would be very hard-hit with rate increases, and let me tell you, they were not lying. Our rates for 2014 are triple what they had been for 2013.

Buffett's profits must be threatened:

Insurance Lifts Profits at Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway


Fueled by an big increase for its insurance underwriting businesses, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway reported first-quarter operating earnings soared to $3.8 billion, a 42-percent increase from the same period last year.

Berkshire's insurance underwriting profits jumped to $901 million, more than 16 times the $54 million it recorded a year ago.

Warren/ Berkshire *already* cashed in on Obongo-care, big time...they bought stock in the insurance companies best profiled to do well as a result of the legislation, before O even "won" the election in '08, and bough puts against the anticipated losers, too. The campaign money was just part of the investment plan...

He doesn't give a damn whether the law actually goes into effect now: his insider "bets" have already paid several hundred percent returns. And now he wants to gain back some of his credibility with "more conservative" investment opinions...
