Obamacare Studies

Recorded on September 27, 2011

From The Heritage Foundation, I'm Ernest Istook.

It's a good thing that the Supreme Court will get to rule on the constitutionality of Obamacare, because that law continues to cause headaches for the country.

Studies at the state level are confirming the ugly picture that's developing across the nation. A Wisconsin study shows people losing their current insurance coverage with higher premiums for those who get to keep it. People get pushed into a federal program, with taxpayers picking up the tab. An Ohio study shows taxpayer-funded health care growing by over 52 percent.

So where does government get that money when it's already going broke? It creates a new health care crisis and a financial crisis at the same time.

Maybe the Supreme Court will rescue us from Obamacare; maybe they won't. The only sure course is to repeal the law, before the damage from it gets worse.
