Blunt Slams Unintended Consequences Of Obamacare

The law was 'poorly written, poorly structured, and crammed down throats of Congress'

Sen. Roy Blunt (R., Mo.) slammed Obamacare, citing the many complications and difficulties it has presented Americans hopeful of obtaining sound health insurance policies.

Speaking before the Senate floor Wednesday, Blunt said that states that set up Obamacare exchanges experienced problems enrolling people. He used Oregon’s failed Obamacare exchange as an example. "I don’t know that any state spent more money than Oregon did…[and they] didn’t sign up anybody- nobody, not a single person was able to sign up through the exchange that they had set up," he explained.

Blunt said that the Obamacare law "was poorly written, it was poorly structured, it was crammed down the throats of the minority in both the House and the Senate." He added that there are "many lessons" Americans and lawmakers can learn from Obamacare, most notably to never pass a piece of legislation in that manner again.
