    Baucus Warns Of Coming "Train Wreck" Over Affordable Care Act

    Baucus Warns Of Coming "Train Wreck" Over Affordable Care Act
    Politico

    Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus criticized the Obama Administration's public outreach on the Affordable Care Act and warned of a "huge train wreck coming down" if the Administration doesn't improve its efforts. During a budget hearing, Baucus told HHS Secretary Sebelius that people and businesses "have no idea what to do, what to expect" from the ACA. Baucus warned that "consumers and businesses will just not have enough information. That it will be too confusing."

    • I don't get Baucus's comment's, he was instrumental in writing that train wreck. That was his baby.

      Obamacare the US job killer.
      On CBS' "60 Minutes", Obama Called His Health Care Package One Of His Major Accomplishments
      CBS’ Steve Kroft:"Why do you think you deserve to be reelected? What have you accomplished?"
      President Obama:"Not only saving this country from a great depression, not only saving the auto industry, but putting in place a system in which we're going to start lowering health care costs and you're never going to go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick." (CBS' "60 Minutes," 12/11/11)
      Yet ObamaCare Has Failed To Make Health Insurance More Affordable
      PROMISE: Obama Promised His Plan "Would Save The Average Family $2,500 On Their Premiums." (Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks Of Senator Barack Obama's Plan To Fight For Working Families And Take On Special Interests In Washington, Indianapolis, IN, 6/20/08)
      FAILURE: FactCheck.org: ObamaCare Is Actually Making Health Care “Less Affordable.” “At the moment, the new law is making health care slightly less affordable. Independent health care experts say the law has caused some insurance premiums to rise. As we wrote in October, the new law has caused about a 1 percent to 3 percent increase in health insurance premiums for employer-sponsored family plans because of requirements for increased benefits. Last year's premium increases cast even more doubt on another promise the president has made -- that the health care law would 'lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.’”
