Obama: ‘You’re Going to Have to Pay For’ Healthcare Either Through Gov’t Raising Taxes or Individuals Paying More

During an interview with Vox on Friday, President Obama stated, “We can’t get healthcare for free. You’re going to have to pay for it one way or another,” and that this payment will be done by higher taxes or individuals paying more out of pocket.

Obama said, [relevant remarks begin with around 30:10 left in the video] that early on, insurance companies had low prices and are now adjusting costs, although that appears to have possibly stabilized. He added, “We can’t get healthcare for free. You’re going to have to pay for it one way or another, either the government is going to pay more, so that people don’t have as many out of pocket costs, or — and that means, in some fashion, higher taxes for somebody, or, individuals are going to have to pay more out of pocket, in one way or another.”
