Overview

In The Truth About Obamacare, Sally C. Pipes—president of the Pacific Research Institute and an acknowledged expert on health care reform—reveals what Democrats in Congress and President Barack Obama don't want you to know: Obamacare is even worse than most critics suspect. Debunking the myths that the current administration has touted, Pipes shows exactly what the new health care law will mean for you, your family, your doctor, and your wallet. Among the myths Pipes will bust:

—Myth One: Every American will have access to care.

—Myth Two: If you like your doctor and your insurance, nothing will change.

—Myth Three: Obamacare will save us from "spending too much" on health care.

—Myth Four: Obamacare will make our health care more "efficient" the way that European health care is—or actually is not.

The Truth About Obamacare reveals how, contrary to its promises, Obamacare will make health care more expensive, limit your options, lead to deteriorating medical care, and weaken America's already frail economy.

    Obama Brings Socialism via ObamaCare; thus eliminating personal liberty and freedom

    On March 23, 2010, Obama signed into law ObamaCare - Socialized healthcare - that will lead to the largest government expansion in U.S. History - a move that was thee soul reson for the Revolutionary War that brought freedom and personal liberty to this country. ObamaCare is over 2,4000 pages long and will cost the American people over $1 trillion dollars; an additional financial burden on a country already in financial crisis thanks to the Democrat Party.
    But the $1 trillion dollar price tag is just the beginning, as Sally C. Pipes details in "The Truth about ObamaCare." Pipes exposes how Obama's socialism will crash our economy via higher taxes for all, regulations that are designed to destroy private insurance companies forcing the American people to purchase government controlled health care.
    How is thst "Hope and Change" working out for you?
    "The Truth About ObamaCare" is a must read. By being well informed will help those opposed to socialism revert back to freedom and personal liberty.

    Excellent!

    Most people know that ObamaCare is bad, but until this excellent book no one has made the case against ObamaCare in as much detail and as articulately as Sally does. She outlines the 2400 pages of red tape and bureaucracy fraught with 159 new committees, agencies, and boards and then discusses the devastating effects these will have on patients, doctors, families, and health care costs. While the president is out there with unlimited tax payer dollars and resources to praise his recently passed radical health care prescription, this book sets the record straight. It's a must read!

    Fear Mongering At Its Finest

    I feel that this book is full of nothing but speculative banter about the end of the world. Every argument is based on what the author thinks is going to happen. I understand what she is trying to do but I think it is too premature to write a book about the health bill at this time. No one knows enough about the bill to know what's going to happen in the future let alone 2050. I am sorry Miss Pipes but I am sure when America decided to integrate schools, there was probably similar dooms day rhetoric going on as well. Like the economic status of this country no one knows how to fix the problem. It will take time and trials before we get it right. For too long the health care system has been allowed to bankrupt families and deny poor people (preventive). That has to stop. I applaud any person (Barack) who challenges the status quo. I agree that the bill may be very clouded and stuffed with stupidity but just like my parents had enough faith in this country to make integration work; I have enough faith in this country to make this bill work. It is an overall good thing, a humane thing and an overdue thing. I thank goodness that it is at least on the books because now the parties will be forced to address the issue. Authors who give a damn should be writing books on how to make bill work. That would serve a better purpose.
