Daniel P. Kessler, a professor of business and law at Stanford University and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains how every one of the main claims for Obamacare (lower health-care costs, smaller deficits, preservation of existing insurance, increased productivity) is turning out to be false.
Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute and a co-author of Why ObamaCare Is Wrong for America, discusses the ‘sticker shock’ families will experience, “when they see the high price of ‘free’ health insurance under ObamaCare.”
Andy Soltis lists five new Obamacare-related taxes that became effective on New Year’s Day 2013.

Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York and author of the new book ‘Decoding the Obama Health Law,’ details the problems ahead for the 250 million Americans who already have health coverage.

And if you sell your home, expect to pay a new 3.8 percent tax.
