Citizens United Foundation is steadfastly opposed to government-operated health care as a matter of principle. Simply stated, we believe that government does not have the ability to handle something as large and complex as our nation’s health care system. The federal government should never take such a central role in our lives to begin with, particularly when it comes to our most personal decisions concerning medical care. Obamacare, while taking over one sixth of our economy, is causing the complete destruction of our free market-based health care system. America’s Founding Fathers would fall ill at the thought of their once-limited federal government intruding in the lives of private citizens to this degree. The specter of Big Government has never loomed as large as it has under the Obamacare regime, and Americans should be gravely concerned about how massively destructive this law will ultimately become. President Obama’s callous attack on the American health care system – once the envy of the world – has now begun wreaking havoc on people’s lives. Sadly, it comes as no surprise to us how disastrous the rollout of Obamacare has been. Even after more than a month’s worth of “tech-surging,” the Obama Administration still can’t get their health care website to function  properly, and the personal information being provided to the government is insecure at best. Millions of Americans are receiving cancellation notices from their health care providers and employers, removing them from plans they have held for years. People of all ages and  backgrounds are seeing their health care premiums increase. The facts show President Obama lied to get this fatally flawed law through Congress. Unfortunately for our nation, Obamacare will only continue to falter as its key provisions continue taking effect this year and beyond. This paper is meant to brace you for the most detrimental impacts of Obamacare, while also educating and preparing you for what is to come. I would like to offer special thanks to our Deputy General Counsel, Catherine Crane, and Deputy Research Director, Matt Naugle, who put so much time and effort into this report. Some on the Left are now claiming the best way to fix the Obamacare mess is to allow it to collapse into a single-payer, European-style system. We predict that this is the big fight to come, as the Obama Administration attempts to provide life-support to its ailing, and failing, health care law. When that happens, it is imperative that we redouble our efforts for the cause of liberty and American free market health care solutions. -

Introduction Our nation’s health care system is no exception to American Exceptionalism. The accomplishments of America’s best and brightest shine through brilliantly in the U.S. health care system, boasting achievements such as a 50 percent decline in coronary heart disease deaths in the last three decades of the 20th century. Even more impressive, the American health care system decreased the infant mortality rate by 90 percent, and the maternal mortality rate by 99  percent, from 1900 to 1999.

 Explaining the innumerable successes of this system would  probably take a lifetime. Health care also means big business for the American economy. This industry composes one-sixth of our economy today, and it will capture 20 percent of the share in less than a decade.

 Almost 12 percent of all private sector employment is attributed to the health care industry.

 In the United States, people’s lives – and for many, their livelihood as well – depend on this vital industry. Then why, many Americans are asking, is President Obama dead-set on implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sure to eviscerate the core foundations of our robust and successful health care system? Considering that most Americans oppose Obamacare,

 and less than half of moderate and conservative Democrats now support the law,

 there exists growing  bipartisan agreement that President Obama’s signature legislative achievement has got to go. The President and his allies in Congress, however, continue to play politics to a frightening level to defend Obamacare. Why? Seen as the Left’s only real opportunity to get a single-payer, European-style, health care system in America, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) confirmed that Obamacare’s unworkable structure will indeed devolve into a single- payer system.

 That is, the same type of system that British surgeons say risks lives because of Citizens United Foundation Page 1

When considering socialized medicine, one only need go back to the days when Russia lined patients up on conveyor belts to undergo cataract eye surgery. Where socialized medicine has been embraced throughout the world, some remarkable methods of reducing healthcare cost have been found, not the least of which is the lack of medical research and innovation.

ObamaCare is exactly what the doctor didn't order... It's the first step to socialized medicine; and that is not a good thing. I've seen the horrors of the NIH in Great Britain & Scotland. I wouldn't wish it on Obama & I can't stand the Commie!
