Lawmakers: Questions remain on how to pay for it.
Obamacare promised to lower our insurance premiums, but now that's looking more like a flat out lie.
The Wall Street Journal reports that United Health Group, Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield are warning that premiums under Obamacare could go up 25-100 percent for some people.
"States like Arizona, their premiums may go up 100%, Arkansas 100%, Georgia 100%, it goes on and on," says Clear Lake Republican Pete Olson who sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. "If you pay your own insurance, you're going to be hammered."
"Every family business I've talked to in Texas District 22 since Obamacare became law, says they expect to drop health care," Olson says.
Fellow committee member Dr. Michael Burgess also has concerns.
"It is going to mean some careful planning for both the companies that provide the insurance and the brokers that are the interface between consumers and the insurance companies, it is going to change the landscape," says the North Texas Republican.
And what about those state exchanges nobody wants?
Longtime Obamacare critic Dr. Art Fougner says this is where the president's promise of lower prices really falls short.
"The IRS estimated that by 2016 the family cost for a bronze plan on the exchange would be $20,000 per year," says Fougner. "That doesn't sound like an affordable plan does it?"
Fougner warns the government is far from ready to implement the exchanges or even expand Medicare due to the recent budget battle.
"The concept is there, but the actual mechanics, how they're going to put the bell on this cat remains to be seen," he says. "The folks at HHS already have admitted this is going to be potentially very messy."
The sequester also is throwing Obamacare into uncertainty.
"There is a real question if the promises made in the president's health care law can in fact be kept because the dollars to pay for the benefits may simply not be there," says Burgess.
