Does President Obama’s reelection mean Obamacare is a settled issue? Far from it, Heritage Foundation scholar Stuart Butler argues on the Journal of the American Medical Association website.
In fact, the challenges facing Obamacare (formally the Affordable Care Act) are actually just getting started, Butler says:
The primary reasons for this are the continuing problems with the federal budget deficit and the national debt and the worrying long-term weakness of the economy. Add to that the increasing skepticism that the ACA’s blunt tools will slow costs.
Heritage’s Bob Moffit outlined a plan to repeal Obamacare earlier this year in National Affairs.
Do you think Obamacare will ultimately be implemented as-is?
