Obamacare Realities Revealed
President Obama’s disastrous health care law has yet to be fully implemented but is already yielding catastrophic results for patients, business owners, and American taxpayers alike. The federal government takeover of our health care system has increased costs, saddled businesses with onerous regulations, and raised more questions than answers.
In this economic climate, the uncertainty created by the President’s health care law is crippling for business and leaves states in limbo. The lack of guidance from the Obama Administration and Secretary Sebelius has prompted employers to cut hours, freeze hiring, and in some cases, close their doors. This past week, Governor Deal cited it as a reason Georgia would not set up a health care exchange, a decision I strongly support.
While Obamacare has created much uncertainty and we are still learning of the perils of the $1 trillion law, what we know so far isn’t pretty:
Eliminates Jobs and Slashes Employee Hours
Increases Health Care Costs
Violates Religious Liberties
Our struggling economy has put taxpayers and hardworking Americans through enough and they simply cannot afford the economic ramifications of Obamacare. The most recent CBO report alone shows that Medicare costs are going to increase under the President’s health care law.
House Republicans remain committed to the full repeal Obamacare. In the meantime, they have repealed several devastating elements of President Obama’s health care law, including the CLASS Act, the Medicare-rationing board known as IPAB, and the medical device tax. These House passed bills protect American jobs, promote cutting-edge health innovation, and encourage American companies to stay in America. I urge my Senate colleagues to protect hardworking Americans by acting and join us in our repeal of Obamacare’s crippling taxes and regulations. I urge my Senate colleagues to help keep highly-skilled jobs and cutting-edge medical research here in the United States
