Despite Carper’s Claims, Obamacare Hurts U.S.

April 1, 2013

The headline on a recent opinion essay from Sen. Tom Carper entitled "Affordable Care Act Helps in Changing Course," is true in that it does make a lot of changes to health care in the United States. However, from most accounts these are not changes for the better. There are 18 separate tax increases, which will transfer more than $500 billion from hard working Americans over the next 10 years. It will also increase the deficit, not decrease it as supporters claim. Employers are now cutting staff and making more workers part time thanks to Obamacare. It cuts $716 billion in payments to Medicare providers. More doctors are planning to retire due to this health care law. And finally it forces physicians to perform procedures such as abortion that go against their firmly held religious beliefs.

This may have been a happy third anniversary of this law to Sen. Carper as well as other supporters of the president, but for most Americans, the consequences are extremely costly in many different areas.
