How Obamacare Will Gut Muni Bonds (Especially in These 7 States)


Obamacare has been an economic and political nightmare.

It's inflicted enormous damage on the American economy and tens of millions of Americans whose medical care has been turned upside down in the name of providing another entitlement without asking anything in return of the recipients.

The future of Obamacare isn't bright.

That's because the Affordable Care Act is going to be anything but affordable. It's going to get more and more expensive, as if it's not already outrageously overpriced hype.
