Affordable Care May Not Be So Affordable

Not everybody feels good about Obamacare. It’s actually called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and was upheld by the Supreme Court in June 2012. Since then, the enactment of new sales taxes, funding cuts, and lower reimbursement rates it contains have had a significant impact on the healthcare system.[1] For example, Obamacare imposes a 2.3% excise tax on the sales of medical devices, which industry lobbyist argue could have an adverse effect on job creation, investment in new research and cut up to half of the profits for medical device companies.[2] Not surprisingly, $150 million has been spent by these companies since 2008[2] to repeal the tax while their stock prices have underperformed the overall healthcare sector and the broader S&P 500 by a wide margin. [3] As the implementation of Obamacare begins on October 1st, 2013, Republicans are committed to repealing parts of bill which they believe negatively impact the healthcare system. See more
