Here are a few reasons why 57% of population rejects ACA

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Kate Miller's assertion that a canvas of unbiased think tanks support Obamacare and the ACA: rubbish.

President Obama said the following: "If you like your health care plan you can keep it. It will reduce the cost of health care premiums by $2,500 per family. I will not sign any health care plan that adds to our deficit."

It transpires that the first two assertions are wrong. As to the third, since Ms. Miller likes to tout objective and credible sources, there is this from the Hoover Institute's Charles Blahaus: "The ACA is expected to increase net federal spending by more than $1.35 trillion and add more than $340 billion to the deficit in the next 10 years and increasing amounts thereafter."

There are reasons that 57 percent of the populace rejects the ACA; these are but a few.
