Trump: Obamacare Will Choke Small Businesses

Thursday, 11 Aug 2011 03:09 PM

Real estate mogul Donald Trump unleashed a fresh round of criticism of President Barack Obama, especially Obamacare, saying that the president’s healthcare plan will choke small businesses.

Donald Trump, Obama, Obamacare, healthcareDuring a CNBC interview, the former Republican presidential hopeful also denounced the debt deal’s appointment of a bipartisan super committee to solve the nation’s financial crisis.

“Our president is lost,” Trump said. “He’s just lost and I don’t think he has a clue and the country can never really be great. You realize how important the presidency is when you see what a poor job he is doing and you see what’s happening to this country.

“I have friends as an example. Obamacare — they’re petrified. Some of them are small business owners and they think they’re going to end up closing their business because they’re not going to be able to afford Obamacare.”

The Standard and Poor’s downgrade of the United States would have been a great time for members of the administration and Congress to fix debt and spending issues.

“Not this committee nonsense, which is going to go to Thanksgiving and beyond Thanksgiving. They could have done something over the next three or four days,” Trump tells CNBC.

He was referring to the bipartisan super committee that has until the day before Thanksgiving to come up with legislation to cut federal spending by up to $1.5 trillion over the next decade.

Republicans also deserve criticism, Trump said, singling out especially House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s reforms to Medicare on the country that have faced criticism even among members of the GOP.

“I’m a little disenchanted with the Republicans. In fact, I was leading in the polls,” Trump said. “Mike Huckabee and myself were leading in the polls, and we both actually dropped out at the same time for sort of similar reasons.”
