In an appearance on CNN’s New Day Wednesday, key Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel said that young, healthy people were “losers” under the 2010 health care law.
Host Chris Cuomo questioned Emanuel about the over 1.5 million families who lost health insurance or saw their deductibles skyrocket after the law took effect.
“In any big piece of legislation for 300 million Americans, there are going to be some winners and losers. And mostly those losers were young, healthy people who were getting a great deal by the insurance companies because they were young and healthy,” Emanuel said.
Cuomo pushed Emanual, saying, “a lot of families in there.”
Emanual responded with a dismissal of young families’ concerns. “Young, healthy families of people who are in their 30s with two young kids who don’t use a lot of health care got a great deal, but people who needed health care didn’t get a great deal.”
Emanual called health care costs increases “unfortunate,” while accusing Republicans of wanting to increase health care costs.
