Congressional Democrats and their supporters on the far Left are cheering the failure of the Republican-led Congress’ first attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. But their glee masks the awful truth about the health care “reform” law they and Barack Obama imposed on the country: The law has been an unmitigated failure and is now on course to destroy what’s left of the health care industry, along with the lives of Americans who depend on it.

Through denial, redirection, and outright fabrication, Democrats continue to lie to us about how “successful” Obamacare has been in insuring people who previously had no coverage. But the fact is, for most of those people, they have coverage in name only; having actual access to health care providers is another story altogether.

Indeed, Obamacare has failed to deliver as promised in at least 10 major ways, including:

!.Obamacare is UNaffordable: During the year-long sales pitch in 2009-2010, before Obamacare was formally passed and signed into law, the 44th president and congressional Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and former Sen. Harry Reid, lied repeatedly in claiming that the reform measure would lower monthly healthcare premiums. That isn’t even true for Americans who had no health insurance but are now subsidized under Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, since now they’re at least paying something for coverage. But the vast majority of Americans who don’t rely on taxpayer handouts are paying far higher premiums than before Obamacare was enacted – in many cases 60-90 percent more.As for those subsidies, former Treasury Department and Office of Management and Budget staffer J.T. Young noted in RealClearMarkets that “successful economic models” do not need to be subsidized. “Producers create a product consumers want to buy and realize a competitive rate of profit. Both sides gain and willingly enter into a transaction. Absent that mutually beneficial relationship, there is no market.”Another reason why premiums are going up is because Obamacare requires all plans to cover a set number of conditions – and consumers, in most cases, don’t want or need all of the coverage that is required.
