The House has 24 votes on bills on suspension today.
One report states that conservatives are Six Months Closer to Repeal on ObamaCare, on this, the six month anniversary of the passing of the Health Bill.
Anyone who has been following the news since Obamacare’s passage already knows why the law is so unpopular: billion dollar employer losses, exploding spending estimates, higher health care costs, fewer doctors, fewer choices, fewer jobs, etc
Michael Cannon of CATO wrote for the Washington Times today that ObamaCare is hurting patients and the idea of affordable health care.
Six months ago today, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. The intervening six months have shown that this health care law offers neither patient protection nor affordable health care – in fact, quite the opposite. Obamacare’s greatest selling point was that it would guarantee health insurance coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, starting with children, through government price controls that would prohibit insurers from charging higher premiums to those patients. Unfortunately, the only thing price controls guarantee is misery.
ObamaCare has been a disaster for consumers and things are only expected to get worse. The repeal ObamaCare effort spearheaded by Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) has picked up steam and we can expect elements of repeal to commence in 2011.
