ObamaCare is smaller, weaker and more liberal than Obama intended

Some provisions have disappeared completely. The ACA aimed to create three new health insurance products. None of them stuck.

The CLASS Act was supposed to provide long-term care. Experts suspected even before the law passed that CLASS would be unworkable. It was. The Obama administration abandoned it in 2011.

It established new, non-profit health care co-ops, designed to bolster competition through lower premiums. All but a few of the co-ops ended up failing.

It also established two new multi-state insurance plans — again, to bolster competition in places that didn’t have much. That effort is now down to one plan, in one state.
