The troubled Affordable Care Act is unfixable and President Barack Obama knows it, says Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute.

"It is not possible to fix it. Every single time they make a change, they create 16 more problems," Turner told Joe Concha, guest host of  "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"This law is so out of sync with the way our economy works, the way our political system works, but they have to keep adjusting it and trying to change it to fix it. It's not fixable.

"But [Obama's] changing it himself. In fact, The Wall Street Journal wrote recently Obama is repealing Obamacare one step at a time," she said Tuesday.

Story continues below video.

Turner says that if Republicans take control of the Senate this fall, Americans can expect to see "a long series of bills going to the president's desk . . . and he'll have to veto bills that allow him to do the very thing he's doing without legal authorization now.

"It's going to set up a very, very interesting dynamic, but it's a big admission the law's not working, that they have to keep backstopping and changing it so often."

Turner's group, a not-for-profit health and tax policy research organization, says more than 35 significant changes already have been made in Obamacare, at least 18 of which  Obama has made unilaterally.
