52 reasons Obamacare can’t work

Obama's signature law falling apart on multiple fronts

WASHINGTON – Rod Coons and Florence Peace, a healthy couple in Indianapolis, spend only $500 every year on medical care and say their current health plan works well for them – but Obamacare will soon strip them of that contentment, forcing them to pay soaring rates and accept inferior care because their existing plan isn’t “government approved.”
And they aren’t alone.
Many Americans don’t realize their health plans won’t meet Obamacare standards next year, experts warn.

Abbey Bruce, a nursing assistant who works a second job cleaning, learned she will now pay a sharply higher deductible, because of Obamacare’s so-called Cadillac tax, which penalizes companies that offer high-end health care plans to employees.
The problems don’t end there. Now that America is finding out what’s in President Obama’s signature legislation, dozens upon dozens of severe problems, failures and unworkable plans are coming to light. And now, polls show most Americans are beginning to suffer both sticker shock and buyer’s remorse.
The controversial, 10,000-page law is now literally falling apart on dozens of different fronts, as a comprehensive WND review has revealed.

Obama promised his health plan would improve coverage, lower premiums by $2,500 per family and allow Americans to keep their doctors and health plans, but a crushing mountain of evidence is indicating otherwise.

Given the more than 50 major problems WND has documented, all of President Obama’s promises appear either highly in question or unlikely to happen, more than three years after his Affordable Care Act was signed into law March 23, 2010.

The most recent glitch is a significant one: The administration’s decision to delay the caps on out-of-pocket expenses is a large part of what is supposed to make the Affordable Care Act affordable. No caps on out-of-pocket expenses means insurance customers will have to pay more for co-payments and deductibles and insurance companies will be required to pay less.

This setback to Obamacare is merely the latest in what has become a long and staggering list of failures or impending failures – including the most important promises affecting cost and coverage. Some of the most striking Obamacare problems are:

·       no guarantee Americans will keep their doctors,
·       Americans may lose their health plans,
·       worsening health care,
·       higher premiums,
·       higher taxes,
·       budget deficit increase,
·       hiring freezes,
·       slashed workers’ hours,
·       killing existing jobs,
·       killing new jobs,
·       jobs already killed,
·       1,200 business waivers,
·       higher Medicare costs,
·       seniors may lose Medicare,
·       most Americans don’t want it.
The list of Obamacare failures, problems and setbacks is growing at a faster pace as Obamacare approaches its implementation deadline of Jan. 1, 2014:
