Obamacare: Critical Condition

Obamacare has provided insurance to millions of Americans–many of them for free (at taxpayer expense). But for millions of others, Obamacare has proven disastrous. These individuals and families find themselves paying up to double what they once paid for health insurance. At the same time, they’re socked with huge out of pocket costs and sky-high deductibles.

Burwell, millions of Americans who bought health insurance through the federal marketplace or “exchange” will lose the federal tax dollars they’re getting to help buy their policies.
