online.wsj.com — Last year, President Obama gave Congress an arbitrary deadline to pass his health-care takeover legislation before the Easter recess at the end of March. This forced lawmakers to hurry their votes on a deeply flawed bill that very few of them had read. Worse, many made false promises to secure final passage.
We're already seeing ObamaCare's madness in its first year of implementation, which is why the American people continue to call for defunding, repealing and replacing it with more sensible reforms. Here are a few examples of the mayhem.
• More than half the states-28 and counting-are challenging the law in court
.A new study from the Senate Finance and House Energy and Commerce Committees found that as a result of ObamaCare, budget-strapped states face at least $118 billion in unfunded mandates during the first 10 years after the law takes effect.
• Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has handed out nearly 1,000 waivers to allow select companies, unions and states to escape some of the burdensome new insurance rules she has created.
• Independent experts have shown that the cost of health insurance will rise faster than it would have without the law.
• Seniors are at risk of losing access to physicians and medical care. the cuts built into the law will force as many as 40% of providers to eventually stop seeing Medicare patients
• Many thousands of people are already losing the health insurance they have now as companies are exiting markets for individual, small group and Medicare Advantage coverage
