Friday marks the second anniversary of the new law’s enactment. In two years, we’ve found out the law cuts Medicare and raises billions in new taxes.
We’ve found out many employers are dropping, and still more are planning to drop, the coverage they provide so if you like what you have now you may not be able to keep it. We’ve found out the law is so unpopular that the government has granted more than 1,700 waivers to exempt labor unions and others from participation.
And, we’ve found out the law’s mandates may be unconstitutional. Kansas and other states are challenging them before the Supreme Court later this month.
That’s why I am working to repeal health care reform. It’s one anniversary I don’t want to observe again.
