Healthcare Part IV: The Lie of the Year

With the passage of Obamacare, Americans were forced to purchase something — for the first time in history — in order to be in good standing with the government. Moreover, it wasn’t an honestly brokered deal. Obamacare, pushed through Congress without proper evaluation or support from the American people, was based on a lie. The president stated over and over that people could keep their current plan and doctor once his sweeping healthcare reform passed. In reality, somewhere between four and seven million Americans lost their plan and/or preferred doctor. Obama promised that families would see their premiums reduced by up to $2,500 per year. Instead, the opposite happened, and rates rose an average of $2,500 per family. Even the liberal fact-check site PolitiFact called it The Lie of the Year. In 2016, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association reported that new enrollees under Obamacare experienced medical costs 22 percent higher than through their employers. Additionally, The New York Times reported that costs were expected to rise another 10 percent or more throughout 2017.
