How is Obamacare on its fourth birthday?

President Obama’s signature accomplishment passed four years ago today. It was partisan - all Democrats; not a single Republican voted for it.

Remember what congressmen said at the time CNS News.

"My heart is heavy with grief tonight at this turning point for the nation," then-Rep. Geoff Davis (R-Ky.) said in remarks on the House floor four years ago today, as the U.S. House of Representatives prepared to end debate and pass the lenthy, complicated legislation that established Obamacare.

"This vote will define the America we will have in the future: massive tax burdens, rationed care, and intrusive bureaucracy," Davis continued.

"Democrats are thwarting the will of the American people, taking them on a headlong rush toward socialism. This is based on a false premise that every need a person could have on Earth can be met by government. … "It raises taxes, violates your privacy, is policed by the IRS, intrudes on free choice, and hurts seniors.

- ex-Rep. Geoff Davis (R,KY) 

Now what do we have? It takes months to sign up. And when you have signed up sometimes you have not! And if you sign up for a plan, but then find you don’t need it you can’t cancel it, because that part isn’t built yet.

Millions have their medical insurance cancelled because it is not legal under Obamacare. “If you like your doctor…” promise broken. “If you like your insurance…” promise broken. Hospitals are excluded from plans. Cancer patients cannot get the medication that keeps them alive.
