|2/6/2014 - One of Obamacare's "selling points" - and yes, there were many - was that the cost of healthcare would come down. That is, the cost of actual care that Americans would have to pay out-of-pocket, as well as the prices that people pay for healthcare delivery.

|1/18/2014 - It's not just glitch-prone and vague about important components of health insurance coverage, like how much it will cost. But the federal online Obamacare exchange, Healthcare.gov, is also a wet dream for hackers, despite the millions spent to "fix" it.

|1/3/2014 - Under our small "r" republican system of government, when the presidents sign bills passed by both chambers of Congress, it becomes a law that the chief executive, by his oath of office, affirms that he will "faithfully" execute and uphold.

|12/15/2013 - One of the worst parts of the Affordable Care Act - besides the fact that it is unaffordable for millions of Americans - is the negative impact that it will have on our national debt.

|12/13/2013 - Whenever I hear Barack Obama talk about government "compassion" and benevolence, I nearly lose my lunch. The man couldn't be lying more if he was telling you that you can keep your health insurance and doctor, or that your coverage rates will decrease $2,500 a year.

|12/10/2013 - One of the predictable effects of Obamacare's intention to add tens of millions of new patients to the nation's healthcare system - without adding a single new doctor or other healthcare provider - is that there simply wouldn't be enough physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to care...|

|12/7/2013 - Under normal circumstances, companies set to launch a major new interactive website that will offer a product or service to tens of millions of people test that site repeatedly to ensure that it functions properly.

|12/3/2013 - Regular readers of Natural News know that we have been frequent critics of Obamacare, because the law represents the kind of top-down, one-size-fits-all, abusive, tyrannical government that strips away freedom, damages liberty and further restricts choice - all things that we despise about our post-constitutional...|

|11/24/2013 - New outrages regarding Obamacare surface nearly every day now, so it should not be surprising to learn this: The Obama administration spent a whole lot more to roll out the disastrous law than just a few hundred million on a failed website that is still under construction.
Billions more, in fact.
|11/20/2013 - The world of politics is nothing if not cynical and hypocritical. One-time allies can turn on you in an instant, if the polling data says it's a good idea to turn.

|11/14/2013 - As additional layers of the law that nobody read are steadily peeled back, more is revealed about just how contemptible Obamacare really is.

|11/14/2013 - It's not often - like almost never - that you hear a Hollywood type criticize Barack "The Messiah" Obama in any meaningful way, but if you wait around long enough, eventually even the unthinkable happens.

|11/8/2013 - One of the intended - yes, you read that right, intended - consequences of Obamacare was to destroy the private health insurance industry. Just weeks after the law's official health exchange roll-out, it is well on its way to accomplishing that goal.

|11/5/2013 - "If you like your plan, you can keep it."

Answer: We don't know.
With today's Internet and programming technology, finding out how many people have visited, signed up, answered a poll, etc., is child's play. It's nothing.
|10/30/2013 - With each passing day, the law known as Obamacare disappoints, under-delivers, overwhelms and further exposes our nation's president as someone who simply cannot be trusted to tell us the truth.
There are other elements to Obama's staggering collapse of credibility - his claims that he didn't know...|
|10/30/2013 - Supporters of Obamacare, including the president himself, say that once the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the law's individual mandate wasn't a mandate at all, but a tax, and therefore lawful under the Constitution, that was the end of it.
The Affordable Care Act indeed survived its legal challenge,...|
|10/30/2013 - The degree of betrayal found in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is finally coming to the surface... and it's intense. As a top Democrat admitted today, the Democrats knew all along that Obamacare would cause millions to lose health care coverage. Yet they continued to promote it with premeditated...|
|10/29/2013 - Once upon a time, not so long ago, in an attempt to sell government takeover of the nation's healthcare system, Barack Obama played the role of serial liar.
While the bill that would later become known as Obamacare wound its way through a Democrat-controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010, Obama jetted...|
|10/29/2013 - One of the things I hear most from supporters of Obamacare (yes, they are still there) is that finally, millions of Americans who previously did not have health insurance will get coverage and have full access to the nation's healthcare system.
When I hear such pie-in-the-sky rhetoric, I often ask...|
|10/29/2013 - It is crucial for the White House that the Healthcare.gov website continue to fail, because once the site actually starts functioning, Americans are going to be hit with such devastating rate shock that the Obama administration may never recover.
Obamacare is named the "Affordable Care Act," after...|
|10/27/2013 - Much of the attention lately concerning Obamacare has been focused on the complete failure of the government website to operate as promised, a failure that has prevented virtually everyone who has thus far tried from actually signing up through it. But according to House Speaker John Boehner, a much...|
|10/25/2013 - Yesterday Reuters reported that 700,000 Americans had applied for health insurance through Obamacare websites, including Healthcare.gov. Huh? Everybody knows the Healthcare.gov website barely even functions. Some of the state exchanges are working, but participation in those has been dismal. Where is...|
|10/25/2013 - In the past week, there has been a smattering of reports that some Americans - finally - have managed to actually sign up for healthcare insurance using the government's Obamacare exchange (Healthcare.gov). But what is equally clear by now is that the Obama administration, for some reason, has been...|
|10/24/2013 - Congressional hearings began today on Obamacare and the disastrous rollout of Healthcare.gov. During the hearings, contractors who built the website were forced to admit even they couldn't log on to the website. (You might think this should have been done during testing, but alas, dear reader, there...|
|10/24/2013 - There are all kinds of casualties of Obamacare, not the least prominent of which is employment.
There are a number of reasons why the job market remains sluggish - cuts in consumer spending, families saving more, government policies and regulatory burdens - but one of the most potent job killers...|
|10/24/2013 - NBC News is now confirming that the individual mandate of the so-called "Affordable Care Act" (Obamacare) will be delayed by the White House due to the disastrously failed Healthcare.gov website. The video of NBC News reporting this is included below.
According to NBC, the deadline for beginning...|
|10/24/2013 - During a photo op in the Rose Garden at the White House on Oct. 21, President Obama, there to put a smiley face on the disaster that is the government's online health exchange website, appeared with a handful of Americans who have actually been successful at enrolling for an insurance plan.
|10/23/2013 - When HHS launched Healthcare.gov, it disastrously crashed. When Obama gave out the 800 number to call because the website didn't work, it also crashed. The Spanish language version of Healthcare.gov has completely crashed, too, and according to reports, ZERO people have successfully enrolled in the...|
|10/21/2013 - There is a point where the Orwellian theater of bad government reaches such a comical threshold of absurdity that even the actors can't keep up appearances. Today at the Rose Garden, Obama lined up a roster of window-dressing stand-ins to create the impression of solidarity in support of the failed,...|
|10/21/2013 - More than two weeks after the hoax launch of the fake "shell" website Healthcare.gov which did not function, the Obama administration has announced plans to bring in real programmers and attempt to build an online federal health exchange site that actually functions.
A widely publicized HHS blog...|
|10/18/2013 - If you thought the size of the original Obamacare legislation was excessive at nearly 2,700 pages, you ain't seen nothing yet. When all of the law's new regulations and rules are written and finalized, it will take a national forest's worth of trees to make all the paper on which to print them.
|10/16/2013 - The mainstream media loves Obamacare. They love it so much that when the disastrous launch of the healthcare.gov system was evident to anyone with an IQ above room temperature, the media tried to cover it up for over a week, repeating the ridiculous White House spin that claimed the site was only crashing...|
|10/15/2013 - Despite the fact that her department had years to prepare for the official roll-out of Obamacare, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius blew it - big time.
And yet, there has been stony silence from the White House - where Sebelius' boss resides - over the manner in which she botched...|
|10/13/2013 - Alex Jones posed a question to me during an appearance on his live radio show Friday. The question was whether those of us opposed to Obamacare should stop trying to politically defund the project and simply stand back and let the thing self-destruct on its own. Now that Healthcare.gov has been exposed...|
|10/12/2013 - (Outrageously inappropriate satire alert) Everyone in the world except Kathleen Sebelius has now come to the realization that Healthcare.gov is a disastrous failure. Three years and $600+ million into the project, the site is rapidly becoming famous as the most embarrassing smattering of broken code...|
|10/12/2013 - Finally, though too late, the chickens have come home to roost for many Obama supporters and apologists.
It isn't from the endless invasions and occupations, Wall Street bailouts, drones, increased gestapo security measures, NSA or several other corrupt episodes swept into the memory holes of mainstream...|
|10/11/2013 - The mainstream media is reluctantly coming around to the reality that the Healthcare.gov Obamacare exchange is fatally broken. At the same time, the media is also pushing a new story that claims mid-November is the "new deadline" for fixing what they call "Obamacare glitches." See Reuters for an example.
|10/11/2013 - I can't think of a time when a law merely "collapsed" on itself, but if there is one law that could possibly collapse enough to invite major reforms or repeal, it might just be the gargantuan, liberty-stealing and massively expensive Obamacare.
Slowly but surely, Americans are discovering what a...|
|10/10/2013 - We have already established that Healthcare.gov is not a functioning database application that allows people to shop for competing health plans. It is actually a government-run Trojan Horse that suckers people into creating accounts where they hand over:
• Name and address
• Email address...|
|10/10/2013 - There have been efforts by politicians at different levels of government to keep Obamacare from even getting a legal foothold in America. And doctors have grouped together and paid for TV infomercials protesting Obamacare.
But guess what. It's here; it's happening. Some will be happy to get health...|
|10/10/2013 - If I had told you one month ago that ten days into the launch of Obamacare not a single person could be confirmed to have successfully enrolled, you would have called me a lunatic. And yet, here we are, tens days into the launch, and guess what? The White House cannot produce a single person who has...|
|10/10/2013 - When the massive piece of legislation that would later become known as Obamacare first came up for votes, Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa was insistent upon one thing: that members of Congress and their staffs be made to live under the exact same rules and mandates the law would force upon...|
|10/9/2013 - The online Obamacare exchange system has just performed a system-wide password reset. This is a sign that a critical failure has occurred behind the scenes: either a security breach has stolen passwords, or passwords have been lost. So now everyone is being required to create a new password, reports...|
|10/9/2013 - As the days of glitches, snafus, down-time and critical errors mount up, evidence is mounting that the Healthcare.gov Obamacare exchange is not actually a fully-formed online application. More and more, it appears to be a mockup of a health care exchange enrollment system.
Think about it: HHS Secretary...|
|10/8/2013 - The government "shutdown" is a hoax. It is pure theater designed to make life as miserable as possible for Americans while the government keeps collecting taxes, racking up debt expenditures, running foreign wars and doing all the unconstitutional things government does these days. It is now becoming...|
|10/8/2013 - Days after Obamacare's official rollout - a rollout that was being planned for years, by the way - it remains a technical (and financial) disaster, with millions of Americans still unable to log onto the government's online insurance exchanges.
On Oct. 1, the day the exchanges went live, Americans...|
|10/6/2013 - Obamacare is going to crash and burn from technical issues more than political concerns, it seems. You've probably already heard that virtually no one can sign up using the online Obamacare exchanges. The web forms are broken. The code is buggy. The data integration is a jaw-dropping failure.
|10/4/2013 - Obama once said upon the unfolding complexity of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare), "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan." And later, "... nothing in this plan will require your or your employer to change the coverage of the doctor you...|
|10/4/2013 - You've probably noticed I'm not covering pure politics anymore here on Natural News, but I am covering Obamacare and health issues quite intensely. And when it comes to Obamacare, you can't separate the insane politics from the Affordable Care Act policies, so I'll give you an advance warning that this...|
|10/4/2013 - I'm not naive enough to believe that politics is anything but a blood sport, but it would be nice to have national media organizations whose editors and reporters remembered that their responsibility, first and foremost, is not to be shills for left-wing statists but to act as watchdogs on government.
|10/3/2013 - As more Americans wade into the complicated, confusing mess that is Obamacare and its health insurance exchanges, they are beginning to learn how punitive, punishing and threatening the law is going to be.
If the very recent Facebook post describing a man's experience when he attempted to sign up...|
|10/2/2013 - All across America yesterday, people were running into frustrating technical problems because the online Obamacare exchanges are full of glitches. Over fifty percent of the exchanges demonstrated critical failures, CNN reported. This is astonishing because CNN has long taken a pro-Obamacare stance.
|10/1/2013 - The old axioms "nothing in life is free" and "there is no such thing as a free lunch" have been true throughout the ages, no matter how hard the Obama administration has tried to make certain demographics of American voters believe just the opposite.
Nowhere is that truer than when it comes to promises...|
|9/28/2013 - Have you noticed that, when administration officials are asked specific questions about Obamacare, they tend to not want to answer them directly? Usually when that happens it's because a) they don't know the answer, or b) they know you won't like the answer they give, so c) they have to search for another...|
|9/27/2013 - Less than a week before the "official" roll-out of Obamacare and the system is in a shambles.
Americans remain fearful and confused about the new law. Benefits and pricing still hasn't been worked out. And worse, some of the state and territorial exchanges called for under the law are already on...|
|9/27/2013 - A leading U.S. senator says there is no need to try to defund Obamacare, because he and other lawmakers believe that the law will simply collapse in on itself.
Senate Minority Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., speaking in the nation's capital after a historic filibuster-like speech against a continuing resolution...|
|9/26/2013 - America's health care system is crumbling. Costs are skyrocketing to the point where employers are now forced to simply fire people in order to avoid the enormous financial burden of paying for their health care. Obamacare was sold to the nation as a way to make health care "affordable," but the reality...|
|9/25/2013 - Right now, all across America, employees are receiving notices that their insurance coverage is being dropped because it isn't "compliant" with Obamacare. Simultaneously, employers everywhere are slashing jobs, cutting hours and downsizing their operations just to stay afloat by avoiding the most punishing...|
|9/25/2013 - Are you ready for a wave of new bureaucracy that will create yet another army of empowered government workers who are guaranteed to abuse your privacy and trust? Well, you're about to get both, as Obamacare gets set for its official launch Oct. 1.
This new wave of government employees are called...|
See all 303 Obamacare feature articles.
|9/24/2013 - The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed a continuing resolution that would fund virtually all government operations - with the exception of Obamacare.
