Obamacare and Gold: Dr. Mark Skousen's Report from the New Orleans Investment Conference

“ObamaCare is not a ‘trainwreck,’ it is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate, so we agree under duress to accept big government.”

I just returned from the famous New Orleans Investment Conference, where gold bugs meet every year to vent their frustrations on big government, an uncertain economy and, sadly, a bear market in gold!

I’d say that half of the panel discussions on the final day of the conference were on ObamaCare, the disastrous “health” care law the Democrats pushed through Congress. Charles Krauthammer, an annual favorite, gave the audience hope by predicting that the “Affordable Health Care Act” is “unaffordable” and will be repealed soon.
