WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner released the following statement in response to a previously unpublicized report from the non-partisan Office of the Chief Actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the impact of Obamacare on employer-sponsored health care. CMS finds that two-thirds of Americans who work at small businesses will see premiums increase under Obamacare, amounting to higher premiums for 11 million people. The report can be found here.
“The Obama administration has finally been forced to disclose what we’ve long feared: the president’s health care law means higher premiums for millions of American workers. For all the promises of lower costs for small businesses, the administration now admits that far more of these workers will pay higher than lower premiums under the law. This broken promise comes in the form of lower take-home pay for some of the hardest-working people in this country. Two-thirds of these Americans – 11 million people – will see more money coming out of their paycheck every month, according to the president’s own actuaries. This is another punch in the gut for Americans already struggling in the president’s economy. Two-thirds of small business employers face higher premiums as well, which is one of the reasons so many are struggling to create jobs under the president’s law.
“It’s clear why the Administration sought to delay and deemphasize the release of this report. It undermines the central promise of the president’s health care law: affordable coverage. And the only reason this information has come to light is the hard oversight work of House Republicans. These 11 million people who will see their premiums spike are 11 million more reasons to repeal this law and start over with common sense reform that will make care more affordable, not more costly.”
NOTE: The report was demanded by Speaker Boehner as part of the 2011 Budget Control Act and was due 90 days after enactment of that law. The report, two years late, was published by the Obama administration late on Friday, February 21, 2014, with no public announcement.
****I HAVE ATTACHED THE REPORT BELOW. TO READ PLEASE CLICK THE LINK! MELLIE
You can always count on the democrats lying!!
You can always count on most politicians lying...it's in their DNA.
This is about what I figured. Whenever a law is passed with no one having read it, it just sounds fishy to me. We were sold a pie in the sky deal that has turned into a whole in the sky to throw money at.
When are our elected representatives going to file impeachment charges against this President for his High Crimes and Misdemeanors ?????
Until we get 67 senators who will vote to convict, it will do no good for the house to file articles of impeachment. With the current makeup of the senate, republicans would have to take every democratic senate seat up for election in 2014 and then get at least 9 to 10 democrats to vote with them. Sadly, it ain't gonna happen!

Once upon a time in hell satan said I will form my own political party of demons and put them on earth so he pondered as to what he would call them because they were to be the biggest liars cheaters and trouble makers on the earth.He said I know what I'll call them!I'll call them demoncrats because after all they are demons.Then his numberone demon who was burnt so bad he was black said no that wont do cause the fools on earth will discover that they are demons and will run away in fear.So Satan said I know what I'll call them I'll drop the n in demon and call them democrats thus the democrat party was formed.
I am sure harry reid will call this a lie too.
Additionally, they will likely receive less coverage. As if small business wasn't having a bad enough time. GE, major contributor to the Obama election pays little or nothing in taxes. Small business owner sends 50cents on the dollar back to big gov. Who has the corporate tax rate in the world? We do.
