But they told us Obamacare would prevent a shrinking economy

The U.S. economy dramatically shrank in the first three months of this year, its weakest performance since early 2009. The report was much worse than what everybody thought, including the White House.

Just two months ago, former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obamacare would actually prevent a poor economic output this year.

Today’s report should be a wake-up call to the White House. Americans are still struggling, and the one-size-fits-all mandates, like Obamacare, are not helping. In fact, they’re making lives harder.

A struggling economy, fewer jobs, less money in your pocket, and a harder life — unfortunately, these are struggles middle-class families face every single day.

That’s why House Republicans continue working to create good-paying jobs and to grow a healthy economy. Americans deserve better.
