Rep. Bill Johnson delivered the Weekly Republican Address on Saturday, March 15. Johnson discusses the devastating impact the president's health care law is having on the nation's seniors, particularly those enrolled in the popular Medicare Advantage program."I've heard from seniors across Eastern & Southeastern Ohio who are losing access to their doctors and seeing premiums increase because of Obamacare's cuts to Medicare Advantage," Rep. Johnson said. "President Obama promised us that if we liked our health plans, we could keep them. That has proven false, and each day more and more Americans are finding that out firsthand. I look forward to using this address as an opportunity to bring greater awareness to the very real problems of the president's health care law."

Our economy is struggling, and government overreach -- whether it's causing workers to pay more for health care, seniors to lose their benefits, or businesses to stop hiring -- is only making things worse. We have a plan to rein in Washington and create more opportunity for the American people.

Seniors across the country are already feeling the effects of these cuts with up to $2,000 in increased costs this year for each senior who uses Medicare Advantage.
