President Obama still trying to sell Democrats’ signature legislation of his presidency, but the law’s negative impact shows why the American public still isn’t buying it.

5 years after Obamacare became the law of the land, President Obama offered many of the same broken promises and falsehoods today addressing the failed health care legislation. With growing costs, millions of Americans losing their plans, and households and business across the country feeling the law’s harmful effects, it’s no surprise that Obamacare is at a record-high of unpopularity.
