McConnell Says Affordable Care Act Has Failed


Sen. Mitch McConnell says the Kentucky Health Cooperative’s decision not to offer policies next year to its more than 51-thousand customers is reflective of the overall state of health care in the United States since passage of the Affordable Care Act.

McConnell says the co-op was planning to hike premiums another 25 percent had it decided to continue operating next year.

The Kentucky Republican says Kentucky Health lost 50-million dollars last year and that was the biggest loss of any co-op in the country.

McConnell claims the ACA has harmed the quality and availability of health care in the United States.
