Steven Brill, author of "America's Bitter Pill," appeared on "The Kelly File" to explain how ObamaCare failed to make health care more affordable for Americans.

In a recent "60 Minutes" interview, Brill described the Affordable Care Act as "an orgy of lobbying and backroom deals that were ultimately bad for the taxpayer."

For example, he said, the pharmaceutical industry, medical device makers and non-profit hospitals all had to make their deals before the law could be passed.

Brill also pointed out that the Obama administration isn't even claiming that ObamaCare lowered the cost of health care, just that it has slowed the increase in cost.

"The good news is that more people have access to health care," Brill said. "The bad news is that he prices are still way too high. Except that this time, the taxpayers have to pay the price, because the taxpayers are subsidizing all this new health care that people got."

"We cannot continue to be a country that spends 18 to 20 percent of our gross domestic product on health care when all the countries we compete with spend half of that and have the same results."

Brill explained that other countries don't spend as much the U.S. on prescription medication and they don't have an abundance of non-profit hospitals - many of which are actually profitable.

So why did President Obama go ahead with the Affordable Care Act? Megyn asked.

"There are two things you can do with health reform," Brill explained. "You can get more coverage for people or you can control the cost. He was told you can cover more people and you can control the cost. And that's not true."

"I think the costs become unsustainable both for the families of America and the taxpayers of America."
