Krauthammer’s Take: Democrats Can’t Run from Obamacare

For Democrats, there is no escaping from Obamacare, Charles Krauthammer said Thursday night.

“There’s no running away from it. It’s got his name on it. You see the president, you think about the policy and you know it’s a disaster,” Krauthammer said on Special Report.

“If it isn’t up and running smoothly and perfectly, they’re going to start with postponements and then the whole thing starts to unravel,” he said.
