The Senate announced a deal yesterday to protect the status quo in Washington. As pundits debate the political winners or losers of this deal, one thing is clear: The American people are once again on the losing end. Once again the Washington Establishment won out, ensuring Obamacare will continue its destructive path by raising healthcare insurance rates and adding to the national debt. As Heritage Foundation expert Romina Boccia wrote yesterday, the deal “locks in Obamacare’s implementation with no relief in sight for those Americans who are seeing their premiums increase, their working hours cut, and their job opportunities diminished.” While Congress has failed to listen to the people, Heritage has not.
