Christian Ministry 'Focus on the Family' Says Obamacare is 'Colossal Failure' (Video)

Citizen Link, the political arm of the Christian ministry Focus on the Family, recently announced that Obamacare is a "colossal failure."

Stuart Shepard, the host of Citizen Link Report, made the claim at beginning of this week's program (video below).

"Obamacare, the colossal failure of Obamacare care, has put many [U.S. Senate] races into play," stated Shepard (pictured).

While Republicans and conservatives such as Shepard see Obamacare as dooming Democrats, anti-Obamacare ads by the GOP failed in 2012 when Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) both won re-election, reports The Washington Post.

Beyond his one sentence political analysis, Shepard presented no evidence that Obamacare is a "colossal failure."

Nor did Shepard mention that 6 million uninsured Americans who are now eligible for Medicaid coverage because of Obamacare, notes Reuters.

Obamacare also banned insurance coverage denial based on pre-existing conditions, allows children to stay on their parents' insurance plans until age 26 and provides caps for out-of-pocket spending by Americans.

The colossal failures are actually the states that refuse to expand Medicaid, leaving about 5 million Americans without coverage, "thanks largely to hostility to the law among GOP governors," reports The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
