Told You So! Told You So!   Leave a comment

While it’s still up, you can read here the Washington Examiner’s exposition about how bad Obamacare is.  Turns out, according to these editors, it’s much worse than its critics ever said it would be. 

To summarize, the Examiner’s analysis shows that:

  • Obamacare won’t decrease health care costs for the government. According to Medicare’s actuary, it will increase costs.
  • As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama’s promise that it wouldn’t. This means that tax dollars will be used to pay for a procedure millions of Americans across the political spectrum view as immoral.
  • Obamacare won’t allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama’s estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.
  • Obamacare will increase insurance premiums — in some places, it already has. Obama’s only method of preventing massive rate increases so far has been to threaten insurers.
  • Obamacare will force seasonal employers — especially the ski and amusement park industries — to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.
  • Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients.
  • Obamacare allows the IRS to confiscate part or all of your tax refund if you do not purchase a qualified insurance plan. The bill funds 16,000 new IRS agents to make sure Americans stay in line.
