WASHINGTON, D.C. | February 6, 2013
In 2009, President Obama promised
that once his health care bill became law “all of the overheated rhetoric over reform [would] finally confront the reality of reform.” Of all the president’s promises about the health care law, this one has come true.
A new report by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) highlights the grim reality of ObamaCare. According to the nonpartisan analysis
, the president’s government takeover of health care is forcing more Americans out of employer-provided health care and hitting job creators with higher taxes:
- By 2022, more than 7 million Americans will be pushed out of employer-provided health care.
- Employers will be taxed an estimated $130 billion for failing to provide government-approved health insurance.
- Over the next 10 years, the health care law will cost $1.6 trillion.
Faced with this difficult reality, it’s no wonder the White House has no comment.
