Health Care Providers Say Obamacare is Bad for America

WASHINGTON, D.C. - We've heard about people being forced to get new insurance because of the Affordable Healthcare Law. Tonight, healthcare providers sound the alarm. Doctors from Atlanta, Arizona and New York say the problems with Affordable Healthcare go well beyond its website. The trio told members of a House Oversight Committee having an insurance card is one thing, having real access to care is another. 20 days away from the law's effective date, healthcare providers say there's no real way for them to refer patients to other doctors. The doctors were also critical of the so called "Bronze Plan" which comes with a $3000 deductible. Even if you make a good living, they say it's a stretch to call that affordable care.
