CBO Confirms Another Broken Promise in the President's Health Care Law

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Earlier today, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), in response to a request from House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, released an analysis of the President's health care law, finding that three to five million Americans will be pushed out of their employer-provided health insurance each year from 2019 through 2022.

In response to CBO's confirmation of another broken promise by President Obama, Chairman Paul Ryan issued the following statement:

"President Obama's string of empty promises is quickly becoming a disappointing trail of broken promises. He promised Americans that his overhaul of the health care sector would not jeopardize the health coverage of those who liked what they had. As nonpartisan analysts made clear today, millions of Americans will soon learn the hard way that Washington's overreach into their health care decisions will result in sharp disruptions to their coverage and their care. The President's disastrous health care law continues to unravel. To advance bipartisan, patient-centered solutions, the President's partisan roadblock must be repealed."
