Rep. Crawford Speaks on ObamaCare's Adverse Effect on Arkansas Families
November 14, 2013
Mr. Speaker, the Mershon family of Gassville, Arkansas is yet another tragic example of the terrible toll the ObamaCare law is taking on the American people.
Small business owners and young parents, this couple has never asked their government for anything more than to let them make a good life for their kids.
These are their words:
Quote "We regret to inform you that we have lost our healthcare coverage. It was not ObamaCare compliant."
"Granted, it wasn't Cadillac style insurance, but it was all we needed."
"So we go to the website. Sticker shock does not begin to cover how we felt. This is an absolute outrage."
"We counted on what was assured to us, promised to us - that our insurance would stay intact, period."
"Our shoestring budget has now turned to floss. Seriously, it is beans and cornbread time." End Quote
Mr. Speaker, a politically motivated administrative fix does nothing to solve the underlying issues with this disastrous law.
Until the President decides to truly do right by the American people, sadly it's going to be beans and cornbread time for millions of families across our country.
Is this really the affordable care we were promised?
I yield back.
