Missing a big point here. Premiums on average are actually rising way slower now...Insurance premiums have gone up from 20% to 100% for less coverage.
" But we’ll also point out some missing context: The rate of increase between 2008 and 2013 was significantly lower than it was between 1999 and 2008.
From 2008 to 2013, premiums rose by an average of 5.8 percent per year. But between 1999 and 2008, premiums rose by an average of 13.2 percent a year -- in other words, twice as fast as premiums rose under Obama."

deductables have always been relatively high.High deductables make it so many people with such insurance still can not afford major medical care.
The million that "loose their coverage" will then be covered via exchanges, and its not like historically people never lost their coverage before the ACA.Millions of employees have lost their employment insurance - something that could not happen prior to Obamacare.
"According to CBO’s "baseline" estimates, 3 million people will spurn their employer’s offer of insurance and turn instead to another source, such as the health insurance "exchanges" created under the Obama health care law. In many cases, they will do this because they consider the employer’s offering to be unaffordable or lacking too many features they need.
CBO projects that, overall, the number of uninsured Americans will drop by 29 million to 31 million due to the law.
As we have previously noted, many Americans lose their current health plan for reasons that have nothing to do with the new law, though figuring out exactly how many is surprisingly tricky."

"Suggestions that business are laying off workers because of the health care law have so far proven to be largely unfounded. Most small businesses -- those with fewer than 50 employees -- do not have to provide health insurance to their employees. (In fact, some very small businesses with fewer than 25 employees may qualify for tax credits under the law.) " http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...alth-care-law/Millions of people have been laid off or reduced to part-time employees.
This has been a problem even before the ACA.An increasing number of doctors are refusing to accept insurance or retiring.
This isnt the ACA's fault this is the fault of a certain group not getting their way in gov and shut it down because they didnt get their way.The government faces long term shut down and gridlock.
Congress had degraded to extreme militant partisanship.
We are days away from massive national and worldwide economic collapse. Basically to destroy everything else, cause world chaos and probably millions worldwide starving to death - all to have Obamacare.
To name a few "downsides" to Obamacare" - a title the President wants it to have.
