Thanks Bruce Braley: ObamaCare Hurts Iowa

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The disastrous ObamaCare launch has caused many to question whether Administration officials should be fired and the unpopular law be delayed. Meanwhile, Bruce Braley refuses to acknowledge that ObamaCare is causing health care costs to rise, that many people are not able to keep the doctors that they are comfortable with, and that workers are seeing their hours cut and suffering the consequences.

The flawed website can’t be differentiated from the product, the website is part of the product and as the glitches and broken promises continue to come online, Braley will try to distance himself from ObamaCare. The truth is, however, that ObamaCare is Braley’s legacy and the problems run far deeper than the need for an IT specialist. If simply signing up for the program causes this kind of problem, imagine what a disaster trying to see a doctor will be for Iowans.

Make no mistake; it is the personal impact that ObamaCare will have on women, seniors, and families that is the real trainwreck for Democratic candidates who have tied themselves to the unpopular law.

In Iowa:

  • Health care costs for individual market plans will increase 10%.
  • Seniors will see Medicare cuts to doctors and hospitals totaling more than $10,000 per Iowa enrollee.
  • A 27 year old will see their premiums increase by 12% and a 50 year old by more than 13% according to the Heritage Foundation.

“Bruce Braley is one of ObamaCare’s biggest proponents, but the unpopular law is already hurting the middle class and increasing health care costs in Iowa,” said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. “The result of Bruce Braley’s relentless support of ObamaCare is that  dysfunctional Washington now stands between doctors and patients, which raises costs and lowers the quality of care. “
