  • DeMint: We Saw Obamacare's Effects Coming (VIDEO)

    Obamacare isn’t working too well so far—and Heritage President Jim DeMint says it’s no surprise.

    On “Your World with Neil Cavuto” this past week, DeMint recalled actually reading the law before it was passed:

    All of us who read the bill—what parts of it we could get when they were trying to pass it—knew this was going to happen. We knew it would cost hundreds of billions of dollars more for the government; it would cost individuals and families more; it would replace private-sector insurance—like you said, creating a government monopoly that will eventually push private insurers out. We’ll all end up on Medicaid.

    And how will we pay for all that new spending? Obama is talking about cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for Obamacare, DeMint says.

    Watch the clip to hear more about Obamacare adding to the deficit, patients having difficulty finding doctors, and the drive to repeal the health care law.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
