O’Reilly Rails Against Obamacare Penalties: ‘We Are Being Conned’

Bill O’Reilly opened his show Wednesday night breaking down exactly how he believes Obamacare will “hurt” average Americans at the expense of subsidizing the poor, declaring it to be a giant “con” as part of a “giant redistribution of wealth scheme.”

O’Reilly reminded viewers of all the “chaos” surrounding the health care law’s rollout so far and how only 300,000 people have sampled Obamacare on the state exchanges.

He explained how the health care law is going to result in higher taxes and premiums for people with insurance, saying “it’s only affordable for those not making much money.” O’Reilly found this “a bit pinhead-y,” but said there’s something sinister going on here.

He charged that the U.S. is being “conned” into embracing a “giant redistribution of wealth scheme” while “actual hand-on health care will decline in the process.”

O’Reilly predicted that by this time next year, roughly two-thirds of the country will be staunchly opposed to the health care law.
