Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Should Be Wary of Comparing Federal Government to Apple

by NRO Staff

Any president who compares the federal government to Apple ought to be wary of doing so, Charles Krauthammer said Friday night.

“An iPad or any of the other stuff Apple has produced: beautiful machines that might have a glitch,” Krauthammer said. “Obamacare is a constellation of glitches, inside of which, perhaps, takes a Rube Goldberg machine.”

Krauthammer went on to criticize what he described as “hidden subsidies”—making the youth pay far more than they would on the market in order to pay for the old and the sick.

Earlier in the week, President Obama compared the rollout of the Obamacare insurance exchanges to glitches that were found in iOS7, quipping that he did not recall “anybody suggesting Apple should stop selling iPhones or iPads.”
