ObamaCare aka Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)t is expected to raise the cost of health care. It can't be His fault.
Yes. Every sign is that ObamaCare's full implementation in 2014 will raise prices. He can't accept responsibility!! Blame those who opposed it.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius on the job. IBD
Earlier this week, Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius admitted that she didn't realize how complicated getting ObamaCare off the ground would be.
Sebelius complained that "no one fully anticipated" the difficulties involved in implementing ObamaCare, or how confusing it would be with the public.
She wasn't talking about the massive and impossible task of imposing central planning on one-sixth of the nation's economy.
Instead, she was trying to find a way to blame Republicans for ObamaCare's failures when the inevitable problems start emerging.
Would she dare try to blame others for her own failure?
Rather than say "let's get on board, let's make this work," recalcitrant Republicans have forced her to engage in "state-by-state political battles," Sebelius said at a Harvard School of Public Health forum. "The politics has been relentless."
So let's see if we get this. Democrats shoved an unpopular, expensive, ill-conceived and poorly written law down the country's throat with no Republican support, and without bothering to see whether states would want to take on the thankless and costly task of helping the feds implement it.
And now that many of these states are rebelling, it's the Republicans' fault?
The Society of Actuaries estimates that insurance premiums will climb 32%. 32%!!!
Finding 3: The non-group cost per member per month will increase 32 percent under ACA, compared to pre-ACA projections.
Reports are that Sibelius accepts that costs will go up. Washington Wire And she blames the Republicans. Of Course. Otherwise President Obama might have some blame cut into his golf and basketball time.
