Because he says so

President Obama said Saturday that millions of Americans already are reaping benefits from the new national health care law, including tax breaks for some small businesses and help for families with young adults.

There is no evidence for this statement. Almost all the alleged benefits he cites are in the future.

All I've seen so far are healthcare cutbacks made or planned by private sector employers, the nation's largest suppliers of private healthcare coverage. If you doubt that, ask your boss or the human resources department at work. Contrary to earlier promises, if you like the coverage you have, there is no guarantee in the "patient's bill of rights" that you will get to keep it.

Make no mistake about it - - middle and professional class taxpaying working men and women lose under Obamacare.
