ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There are 1,372 reasons the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare, is a bad idea. Why 1,372? Because that’s the number of exemptions that have been given to unions, corporations and even the retirees association AARP by the Department of Health and Human Services.

By asking for exemptions, unions are agreeing that Obamacare would harm them and businesses agree it would increase costs and kill America jobs. AARP is also, in effect, admitting that the law is bad for seniors. Of course, the most expensive parts of Obamacare don’t take effect for a few years.

Meanwhile, we were clearly told Obamacare would reduce our health care costs.
