Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America is the first book to explore, in detail, how the new health care law will affect the nature, quality, and availability of health care in the United States. The bill was passed in a highly polarized environment over the objections of a majority of the electorate. Now, one year after its enactment, there has been sufficient time to assess in full the myriad ways that the new law gives power and authority to the federal government at the expense of people, states, and employers. The authors, nationally recognized experts on health reform, are fellows at four different conservative think tanks that have led the fight against ObamaCare. They are in a unique position to explain this legislation and its detrimental effects to the American people.
The sponsors of ObamaCare promised that the law would lower health costs, improve the quality of care, and help reduce the deficit. Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America explains why all of these promises have or will be broken. The new law will impair job creation, burden taxpayers, and put the government in the health care driver’s seat, with severe detrimental effects for the quality of American health care. The book explores in detail all of these issues, and explains the ramifications in chapters devoted to families, seniors, young people, employers, doctors, and taxpayers. It concludes with a prescription for reform that puts consumers and their physicians in charge of their care, not the government.
This book forum will feature all four co-authors and an introduction by Howard Husock, vice president of policy research at the Manhattan Institute.
Published on the one-year anniversary of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America is the first in-depth examination of the impact of this unprecedented law on nearly every part of American society. Written by four clear-eyed health policy experts who do not pull their punches, this new book demystifies the complex contortions of the sweeping plan that the Obama administration and Congress finally jammed into final law last year, despite the strong protests of a skeptical public. The authors explore the initial and future effects of ObamaCare on its victims – the American people. Eye-opening and unsettling, but still inspiring all of us to do better, this is a book that everyone in America should read. Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America delivers essential information on what’s in the new health care law, explains how it will affect you, and recommends what you can do about it.
Please join us on Tuesday, March 29, to discuss the dangerous impact of the new health law on families, seniors, young adults, doctors, employers, and taxpayers; plus its continuing threats to the economy, access to care, and our constitutional rights.
