Rick Perry: You canít dress up the failures of Obamacare [View all]

[font color=navy]Perry wrote this essay exclusively for The Dallas Morning News.[/font]

The promise and potential I normally greet each New Year with is, this year, being tested by a great sense of peril as Americans face the full brunt of the disastrous impacts of Obamacare in 2014. The delays, deceit and debacles that marked Obamacareís rollout in 2013 show no signs of slowing in the new year.

People all across the country have witnessed what a disaster this program has been from its earliest stages, ranging from the $600 million website debacle to the sad fact that President Barack Obama flat-out deceived the American people when he promised that those who like their coverage could keep it. To stem the bleeding, the administration is resorting to arbitrary delays for some Obamacare mandates, which only inject more confusion into the marketplace and with consumers.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and the president are left with selling a faltering program to an American public that has rightfully become more and more concerned with what itís learning about this law.

Much of what sold Obamacare in the first place was the administrationís assertions that we could trust them, and that even though nobody could explain precisely how or why, Obamacare would make everything better. It hasnít. Sadly, it takes more than empty assertions to fix what ails Obamacare.
