Congresswoman Foxx speaks at the House of Representatives' Republican Leadership Stakeout on the questions and uncertainty caused by Obamacare:
The President's health care law is the wrong solution to address the challenge of health insurance access and affordability. It's also the wrong solution for this economy.
John, my constituent from Ashe County, wrote to tell me that his insurance premium is going to increase 33%, but at the same time his hours at work have been cut.
He wants to know how he's going to pay for this.
The impact of Obamacare is also being felt at North Carolina schools and community colleges where substitute teacher and adjunct faculty hours are being reduced because of the new employer health insurance mandate.
For these folks, Obamacare is threatening take-home pay and hurting their career opportunities.
And what's next? We know there are more changes to come.
In this new Obamacare reality -- the one in which Americans won't necessarily get to keep their plans or their doctors, but will likely be paying more for care they might not want or need -- in that reality, families need some certainty.
Will Secretary Sebelius provide it today?
Families are already very mindful of budgets around the holidays, and with the added stress of higher health care costs next year, they just want some honest answers about how this law is being implemented and what it has and will cost them. Everyone is tired of waiting for clarity from an Administration that keeps waiting until the last minute to change its mind and announce the next big delay.
