Soapbox Donald Trump on Obamacare

Comment: I recently read an article on facebook attributed to Donald Trump
about Obamacare. Here it is:

Let me get this straight...
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to
purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten
million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for
16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he
doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress who didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes,
with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes,
for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,
by a government who has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a
country that is broke!!!!

Didn't he originally make his money/fame by inheriting enough to invest in NYC real estate? AKA, shooting fish in a barrel if you can make the initial investment.

Yeah, I heard right (from Wikipedia)
In 1971 Trump moved to Manhattan, where he became convinced of the economic opportunity in the city, specifically large building projects in Manhattan that would offer opportunities for earning high profits, utilizing attractive architectural design, and winning public recognition.
Wow, what a visionary! Money to be made controlling Manhattan real estate! Who'd have thought?!

Of course, a casino should be the same...
