ObamaCare will increase the costs of prescriptions.<quoted text> When I asked her what she was going to tax to raise the enormous amounts of money it would take to pay for she couldn't tell me. Libtard pie in the sky feel good bullshit!! Obamacare will cost at least $700 lion just to pay the insurance premium starting next year. Where the hell is that coming from? there is not enough money in the country to pay for it. By 2025 SSI and Medicare will use up every tax dollar the federal government collects. That doesn't include Obamacare. Where is the money coming from to pay for the rest of the government?
NCPA Study: Obamacare Will Increase Drug Costs

While the Affordable Care Act has increased prescription drug coverage, the result is a plethora of regulations that will make medicines more expensive, according to a study from the conservative National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) think tank.
The regulations curb competition, the study argues.
“Drug coverage is expanding rapidly and heightened regulatory scrutiny will prevent drug plan managers from holding down costs for consumers with programs such as creating exclusive networks and encouraging mail-order prescriptions,” Devon Herrick, a senior fellow at NCPA, said in a press release.
Rules governing the structure of pharmacy networks and price formulas for drugs are onerous for the drug industry, according to the report.
It says that regulations barring drug plans from offering lower co-payments for mail-order service will push up costs for consumers, even though it may aid community pharmacies.
“The goal of policymakers should be to allow competitive bidding among drug-plan stakeholders in an environment free of perverse regulations that unduly advantage one party over another,” the report says.'
