U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today marking the three-month anniversary of the enactment of ObamaCare:
Three months of ObamaCare has given the American people nothing but a string of broken promises. It will send the nation’s cost for health care skyrocketing by more than $300 billion, while increasing the deficit and imposing tax penalties on millions of middle class families. The president’s oft-repeated assurance that you can keep your health insurance lacks credibility and millions of Americans will lose their current plan by 2013 and have to shop for new coverage.
The American people rejected ObamaCare long before it became law, and their frustration with this government-takeover of health care has only grown. They know it’s time to repeal ObamaCare, with its budget-busting price tag and job-killing mandates, and replace it with common sense solutions that actually lower costs without growing the size of government.
