Broken Promises: The ObamaCare Story

The White House is celebrating the enrollment target of 7 million for ObamaCare.

While the media gets distracted by the Obama administration victory lap, the facts behind the story are not a cause for celebration.

The truth about President Obama’s health care law is described in FreedomWorks’ educational booklet, “Broken Promises: The ObamaCare Story.”

Obama lied about his health care plan to get it passed and now millions of Americans are being forced into the government designed options.

FreedomWorks Policy Analyst Patrick Hedger highlighted the concerns surrounding ObamaCare:

“Democrats have made a lot of promises to the American people, but today the results are in. The sad reality is that this government takeover has resulted in billions of dollars added to the deficit, premiums raised by 41 percent on average, millions of individual plans dropped, jobs lost, and work hours cut.”

The booklet exposes numerous broken promises of ObamaCare including:

“You can keep your plan.” – President Barack Obama

“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits, either now or in the future.” – President Barack Obama

“It’s a tax- er, it’s a penalty for free riders.” – Rep. Nancy Pelosi

“Health reform will reduce family health insurance premiums by $1,570- $2,240 for the same benefits.” – Sen. Kay Hagan (NC)

“The health care bill is a jobs bill.” – Rep. Nancy Pelosi

“This law is already making a difference for millions of young people, and it’s about to help millions more.” – President Barack Obama

“We passed a private sector market-based insurance choice for all Americans.” – Sen. Mary Landrieu (LA)

“ObamaCare is an amazing success story so far.” – Sen. Mark Pryor (AK)

ObamaCare exposes the progressive movement for what it is: a way to herd Americans into pens so they can be controlled by their big government masters.
