Jan Brewer: Obama Put Americans in 'Terrible Situation' With Obamacare

(Fox News/"America's Newsroom")

Obamacare premium hikes in Arizona are becoming "just absolutely outrageous," and the national healthcare reform law is a failed program, former Gov. Jan Brewer said Wednesday while striking back at a statement from President Barack Obama claiming the premiums will skyrocket in her state because it had "really low average premiums" and insurers "are basically trying to catch up."

"He always has an answer for everything," the former governor, a Republican who supports GOP nominee Donald Trump's campaign, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Martha MacCallum. 

"The bottom line is, we know Obamacare is not working. It is a failed program, [and] he misled the public when he proposed it and got it passed."

And as a result, Obama has placed Americans in a "terrible situation," Brewer continued.

"In Arizona, a young man, single will pay $450 a month for his premiums," she said. "He can't see his doctor. He can't have same carrier. And family of four is going to be almost $1,450 for a family.

"Now, that is just absolutely outrageous, and I think the public now understands that they weren't telling the truth and things have really gone askew."

Brewer on Wednesday also said she's optimistic that her state will remain a red state, even though polls show Trump in a virtual tie with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I think Republicans will come home and independents will vote appropriately, wanting a change," said Brewer. "You know, we're not giving up. We are pushing forward and Arizona will remain red.

"It is just simple fact of the matter, I've had people come up to me that never ever voted in an election that are turning out on Election Day, or already cast their ballot. We feel pretty comfortable. We know it's tight. It is not over until it is over. I don't think the polls are always right either.

The election is tight, she agreed, for many reasons.

"I think some of it is the candidates' fault," said Brewer. "Some is the left-wing media's fault. Some people are not paying attention. Confusion. But I think people are digging in now and they're understanding the situation our country is in.

"They want jobs and economy turned around. They want taxes lowered. They want our borders secured. They want our families safe. I think that is is the message Donald Trump has been saying and giving."
