    US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell claims that five years of Obamacare have only brought the American people reduced choices in doctors, soaring medical costs and out of control additional financial penalties.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Five years of Obamacare have only brought the American people reduced choices in doctors, soaring medical costs and out of control additional financial penalties, US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday.

    "[T]he American people continue to oppose this unprecedented Democrat attack on their health care," McConnell said on the Senate floor. "When Americans think Obamacare, they think increased cost, runaway premiums, surging deductibles. tax hikes on the middle class."

    The Obamacare program, McConnell argued, also known as the Affordable Care Act, had also resulted in frightening scarcity of options for too many when they get sick.

    "When Americans think Obamacare, they think broken promises and endless failure. Imploding state-based exchanges, collapsing co-ops… and the lie of the year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’," he added.

    McConnell was promoting the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act to start dismantling Obamacare which has already passed the US House of Representatives. President Barack Obama is expected to veto the legislation if the Senate also approves it.
