Stephen Lynch (D-MA)- The Worst Part Of Obamacare To "Hit The Fan"

Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch from Massachusetts claims that the worst part of Obamacare is about to "hit the fan." Granted, he voted against it in 2010- the only one of his fellow Democrats to do so.

“There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable." “As these provisions come into effect, the administration thus far is saying, ‘Gee, we really can’t handle this right now so we’re going to delay it.’”

“These obligations keep piling up." “Any individual with an individual healthcare plan that exceeds $10,200 is in a Cadillac plan situation. They’re going to have to pay — that employer, if they provide that, and many do today let alone in 2018 — will have to pay a 40 percent tax on the amount over the minimum established — excuse me, the maximum established under the Affordable Care Act.”

“That is a huge tax. It’s the first time in this country’s history that we have actually taxed health care." “We used to treat it like food, that people would die without it. Well, we’re in a new day now.”
“We will lose seats in the House." [snip] “I am fairly certain of that based on the poll numbers that are coming out from the more experienced pollsters down there. And I think we may lose the Senate.”

Hopefully this is good news for the Republicans in mid-terms.
