Fully Repeal Obamacare

Passed back in 2010, Obamacare gave the federal government unprecedented control over the health insurance industry. Obamacare took control away from patients, doctors, and health insurance companies and gave it to government officials. The federal government now has the authority to force individuals to buy health insurance, force employers to provide health insurance, and regulate what kind of health insurance patients are allowed to buy.

While the stated goal of Obamacare is to make healthcare more affordable and more abundant, the outcome has been far different. President Obama’s healthcare law has caused millions to lose their plans and doctors, limited consumer choice, reduced competition, failed to lower the growing cost of health care insurance and increased taxes. Obamacare represents a significant step toward a single-payer, government-run healthcare system.
