  • Warning: Obamacare May Be Hazardous to Your Health

    Times Square Billboard

    We’ve talked a lot about Obamacare’s costs—how it will hurt the economy, kill jobs, and cost you and your family more when you pay for health care.

    But there’s an even more important cost: your health.

    Obamacare will affect the quality of care in this country. It will limit the choices we have in doctors, hospitals, and treatments. People are already learning that their trusted doctors aren’t going to be available to them in the new insurance plans Obamacare is forcing them into.

    And disrupting your relationship with your doctor is not how health care reform should be.

    >>> Watch our new video to see what doctors have to say about Obamacare:

    The Heritage Foundation, our experts, and our 600,000+ members believe so strongly that Obamacare is bad for your health that we’re putting this message front and center in Times Square.

    Our new billboard in the heart of New York City will be installed this week to get people thinking and to raise awareness about the need to stop Obamacare.

    Why? Because we don’t want to see people lose their health coverage—and the doctors they trust.

    We don’t want to see access to treatments and procedures determined by government boards, putting bureaucrats between doctors and patients.

    We don’t want to see seniors’ care suffer because of Obamacare’s cuts to Medicare.

    We don’t want to see millions of Americans dumped into Medicaid—because it is not quality health care. As Heritage President Jim DeMint said in an op-ed this morning, “Expanding a broken Medicaid program is just giving millions of Americans a cruel and empty promise—an insurance card with limited access to real health care.”

    We can’t stand by and watch these threats to our health and our families’ health go unchallenged. We must stop Obamacare.

    We need to defund Obamacare so that we can start over on health care reform, with a blank slate, with solutions that leave health care decisions firmly in the hands of individuals and their doctors.
