Gov. Bentley says Obamacare has hurt state's economy

Posted: Updated:

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says Obamacare is hurting the state's economy.

Bentley said Friday the Affordable Care Act has been a drain on the economy since it passed.

"It's really a confusing situation for companies and people for our whole country and the worst thing that's happening is the passage of this bill has hurt our economy. Had the Affordable Care Act never been passed our economy would have been turned around two or three years ago," Bentley said.

Alabama's current unemployment rate is up to 6.4 percent.
