Today, Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released the following statement on the 3rd anniversary of Obamacare, the President's healthcare bill which was signed into law on March 23, 2010:
"Since 1981, I have practiced medicine, treating uninsured patients in public hospitals. I have seen politicians over-promise and underfund health care programs while hustling taxpayers by promising "free money" and appealing to their human kindness. But too often politicians don't reveal the full cost or effects of their policies. After three years of learning what's in Obamacare, we know this is exactly what Obamacare did. American families are paying $3,000 more in premiums than before Obamacare and the costs just keep piling up. Businesses cannot afford to hire new employees or are shifting people to part-time work to avoid expensive regulations. Three years later, Obamacare continues to be an anchor on our economy and job creation."
