Parts of our health care delivery system do need -- Workers feel a -- to their jobs because they get their health insurance from their job and no one knows what anything costs even doctors don't know.
As a result everything costs -- Obamacare doesn't even address those problems but it's supposed to solve all kinds of other problems you have turned Mr.
President the right.
Of every American to have access to decent health care if -- reality.
-- -- And obamacare does promise to cover the uninsured and somehow to lower -- than maybe it -- it's early yet for.
I'm skeptical obamacare is already creating some new problems let's talk to a doctor about -- orthopedic surgeon John -- I should also say he's -- US senator.
So -- what's that giant stack of paper next.
This is the red tape power John it's over seven feet tall and these are just the regulations that have come out so far.
Because of the Obama health care law there's over 20000.
You and I thought that the health care law which was over 2000 pages was too long.
But remember so many times it said the secretary of health and human services will write the rules and regulations.
This is just the first part of them that doctors and nurses and hospitals and patients and insurance companies all have to comply with.
Under the the president's health care law.
So that's the first part more to come but what about the goal.
The uninsured 40000015.
When he whatever it is it's a noble goal get them insurance.
-- the president actually continued to use the word coverage instead of using the word care in the debate.
Because just because you have been Medicaid card which is the way the president which seems to want to solve this doesn't mean you can actually get.
Care what what people wanted to Health Care Reform was the the care that they need from a doctor they choose at lower cost.
But the president has failed in terms of trying to bring the the cost down remember he said by the end of his first term.
Families would see their insurance premiums dropped by about 2500 dollars per family per year no one has seen.
That and in fact if you go to a town hall meeting -- -- people how many of them think that they're paying more for health care under the president's health care law all the hands go up.
And then US can do you think that the quality and availability of your care.
Will be better nobody thinks that.
Even Kathleen Sebelius finally admitted she's the secretary of health and human services.
That under the health care law there would be winners as well as losers -- many more people now believe they're going to be losers under the president's health care law.
And the cross are already going up Associated Press reports are.
Claims costs are up 32%.
I never quite understood I think you could -- more for people -- having cost less.
And the president has actually compound of the problem.
Under the government mandates that you have to buy government approved.
Which isn't necessarily the insurance that you think works for you and your family in terms of what you want or need -- can afford.
You have to buy a very expensive level of coverage because it has to cover so many things many of the things that things.
Aren't necessarily that would -- -- right for you or your family.
I see analysts here to hit every policy -- must cover preventive care.
Without any deductible breastfeeding support supplies and counseling.
So everybody has to pay for that if you don't even if you don't want it.
Everyone has to pay -- pay for government mandated insurance which has a whole long list of things that they have to cover.
And of course the rates are gonna go up if you have to buy a lot of things that you don't want.
Part of what we can do about the poor without government -- the poor suffer.
We need to make sure I wanted to focus on getting actually the rates of insurance.
Down so people could get the care they need from a doctor they choose at lower cost.
But I don't think it helps anyone when the cost of care in the cost of insurance continues to go up.
Under the president's health care law.
The other problem is that he he he you're exempt if you're -- -- business and you have fewer than fifty employees so I hear.
Businesses are saying I'm knock -- expand I got 49 workers that -- -- that the Federal Reserve is actually in -- back and its Beige Book last month said that one of the big drags on the economy.
In this country to reason that people aren't expanding aren't being our businesses aren't expanding people aren't being hired.
Is because of the uncertainty as well as the mandates in the health care law part of it is the of number of fifty employees or fewer so they're not hiring more people into those businesses.
The other is in terms of full time or part time employees we see now that one of the largest.
A movie theater change in the country is now said.
For all of their folks that are paid by the hour.
They're going to be part time workers only which is anything less than thirty hours because businesses are mandated to have to cover.
Part time workers but they are mandated to cover the full time workers so you see in in business as we've talked to some.
Where that where they say gee we we have an opening instead of hiring one full time person we're gonna hire two part time workers.
Instead of -- because of the health care law.
The health care law is dragging down our economy making it harder to people to find full time work.
Thank you senator brown so all these laws have unintended consequence.
Thank you John let's look at that big seven foot pile again.
There it is and the secretary shall continue to write new rules.
It -- in the bill they will grow.
Okay now --
