Looks like Obama is missing the spotlight! The ex-President can’t resist giving his opinion about the latest in American politics- and surprise!- he doesn’t like what President Trump is doing with the place.
Obama wrote a Facebook post on Thursday lambasting the Republicans’ new plan to repeal and replace the failing and hyper-expensive “Affordable Care Act,” aka, Obamacare. He wrote in part:
“Thousands upon thousands of Americans, including Republicans, threw themselves into that collective effort, not for political reasons, but for intensely personal ones— a sick child, a parent lost to cancer, the memory of medical bills that threatened to derail their dreams,”
Never mind that no Republicans voted for the ACA in 2009 and approval for the program was plummeting at the end of Obama’s tenure.
He then called the Republican’s new plan “a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America” and continued with:
“To put the American people through that pain— while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return— that’s tough to fathom. But it’s what’s at stake right now. So it remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need.”
Never mind that many middle-class people have seen their premiums skyrocket and insurance companies have been pulling out of Obamacare exchanges all over the country.
Honestly after the disaster of the ACA, Obama’s disapproval of this plan is all I need to know that the Senate is on the right course. And if that weren’t enough, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to throw in her two cents:

Yep, no thanks. All I can say to the Senate Republicans is FULL STEAM AHEAD, PLEASE! Share if you agree- Let’s get the ACA REPEALED and REPLACED!
