If the Affordable Care Act does not fail because of flaws in the law, it will likely be changed by Congress due to voter pressure. Already, the administration is delaying implementation of certain parts of the law because it is unworkable, says Diana Furchtgott-Roth, former chief economist of the U.S. Department of Labor and director of Economics21 at the Manhattan Institute.

Implementation of the Affordable Care Act appears to have six major problems:

1. People are not signing up.

2. Numbers of uninsured will remain high.

3. Premiums are pricey.

4. Deductibles are expensive.

5. People cannot keep their plans, despite President Obama’s promises.

6. People cannot keep their doctors. In order to keep costs down, insurance companies are reducing the numbers of doctors on their insurance plans, and eliminating some of the more expensive hospitals in the networks.
