The Affordable Care Act was passed under the notion that everyone will have and be able to afford health insurance. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be the case, according to a 2012 GAO report the uninsured population in 2014 is projected to be 38 million people and by 2022 is projected that 30 million will still have no insurance. The report estimates that families will pay $2,400 in increased premiums per year and projects that by 2019, over 20 million Americans could be cuts from their current employer – based coverage.
The Affordable Care Act requires that all Americans carry health insurance by March 31, 2014. The administration will spend $700 million to persuade Americans, who want nothing to do with this so-called health reform, to sign up on a health care program that the GAO reports will add $16.2 trillion to our already staggering debt and will take $700 billion from Medicare.
This month a new report was released by the Department of Health and Human Services that estimates insurance premiums in some states in 2014 will see a hike in triple digits and there be will fewer choices.
We have already heard (and many have felt) the beginning impact of this so-called affordable care with lower work hours or companies just deciding to lower their work force; we have heard how some have lost their policies after years of paying into them and how doctors are giving up their practice because they can not afford the cost.
Yet, either Obama and the Democrats choose to turn a blind eye on the fact that their affordable plan is a non-workable piece of legislation and admit they made a mistake or this is part of their plan to make United States more like a third world country then a leader of the world.
