2. Many people are losing their health insurance. / Via

An estimated 7 MILLION people will lose their job based health insurance because of Obamacare. The law encourages employers to stop offering health insurance. Oops.

4. Many people are getting their work hours cut. / Via

Obamacare's employer mandate punishes businesses with over 50 "full time" employees. Full time is 30 or more hours a week. Hmm, it's no coincidence that over 360 businesses have already slashed workers' hours to 29 hours a week. So, you may have to get two jobs to pay the rent.

6. Many young people can't get a job. / Via

Because Obamacare is a complete mess, many employers are getting rid of entry level positions and avoiding new hires because they have no idea how this thing will be enforced.

7. The young and healthy will take the hardest hit. / Via

The young and relatively healthy people will pay for the health care of old and unhealthy people in the Obamacare exchanges. If you’re a single adult with no kids, you’ll save at least $500 by not opting into the exchange and paying the government fine instead.

9. Obamacare will increase the national debt. / Via

Obamacare will cost about $2.4 trillion in the first decade. It will increase the long term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion! And yup, young people are going to be stuck with the bill.

10. Everyone is going to be forced to buy health insurance. / Via

Whether they like it or not. Too bad if you can't afford it. Starting next year, buy a private product or pay a government fine.

...That ain't right.
