Speaking before a crowd at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. today, the President said Obamacare is “working the way it should.”
If President Obama considers a crappy website, scores of patients being forced to switch doctors, nearly 30 delays and last minute changes to the law, and thousands of Obamacare-induced layoffs as “working the way it should,” then the American people are in more trouble than they know.
Obamacare isn’t working and here just 10 reasons why:
1. According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, just 39% of Americans support Obamacare.
2. According to the latest Investor’s Business Daily Obamacare jobs scorecard, some 401 employers have slashed tens of thousands of worker hours and jobs due to Obamacare.
3. The Kaiser Family Foundation’s recent polling data says 56% of uninsured Americans don’t like Obamacare.
5. A McKinsey & Co. study recently found that “only 11% of consumers who bought new coverage under the law were previously uninsured.”
6. The New York Times reported that at least 20% (or 0ne-fifth) of all the people who applied for Obamacare never paid their first month’s premium.
7. A recent Fox News poll found that 64% of Americans said Obamacare would have never passed if they knew in 2009 what they know now about the healthcare law.
8. Obamacare is expected to cost taxpayers between $1.8 trillion and $2.6 trillion over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
9. The Congressional Budget Office also concluded that Obamacare will result in a “decline in the number of full-time equivalent workers of about 2.0 million in 2017, rising to about 2.5 million in 2024.”
10. Last month Obama’s own Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services stealthily released a report revealing that, under Obamacare, two-thirds of Americans who work at small businesses will see their insurance premiums increase. That’s a far cry from the President’s campaign promise that American families would see lower health insurance premiums.
