Wisconsin Study Reveals Obamacare “Winners and Losers”

Kathryn Nix /

Last week, the state of Wisconsin released a report summarizing the effects of Obamacare on the Badger State’s health care system.

The study, which was conducted by Gorman Actuarial and MIT Economist Jonathan Gruber—an Obamacare supporter—and commissioned by former Governor Jim Doyle (D), provides further proof that Obamacare is on track to break the promises President Obama made to the American people regarding his plan for health care reform:

As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” She was right. Obamacare does nothing to lower the cost of coverage by creating market-driven efficiencies, which would reduce expenses for patients and third-party payers alike. Instead, the new law simply shifts increasing costs to federal and state taxpayers through the expansion of Medicaid and creation of taxpayer-funded subsidies. At the same time, costly and burdensome insurance regulations will force the cost of coverage upward for businesses, individuals, and families.

The more the American people learn about this bill, the less they like it. The Wisconsin study provides important new information that backs up what many people already know: This bill falls short on the President’s promises. The Wisconsin study raises further concern over Obamacare’s viability.
