Broken Promises, Damaged Families – The Legacy of Obamacare


Across the country, pundits and politicians are talking about the political implications of the unaffordability of Obamacare and its disastrous rollout. Mary Katharine Ham has a round-up some of the crushing broken promises to the American people. They include:

Rather than more competition, functional oligarchies are appearing in many rural areas of the country. This is not lowering costs for consumers.

Insurance plans are being cancelled by CareFirst, including “more than 40 percent of the 177,000 individuals covered by CareFirst in” Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

And from Guy Benson at comes this Forbes analysis describing more suffering among the non-elite, non-special interests:

This week the reality of the ObamaCare roll-out appeared in a set of news stories that serve as an ironic juxtaposition. Over 500,000 individuals have seen their insurance policies cancelled in just 3 states.  In all 50 states, only 476,000 applications have been “filed” in an exchange.

Obamacare was supposed to increase coverage and reduce costs. It’s now clear that is not going to happen, and the American people are feeling the results. There’s no amount of “tinkering” that can fix this train wreck, it’s time for a full repeal.
