Today, Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released the following statement on the two year anniversary of the President's health care law:
"Two years ago, Democrats and Americans would know what is in the health care law when it passed. They were right, two years later Americans know the health care law is bad for seniors, bad for doctors and bad for our economy.
"The President's health care law has three particularly bad elements. First it endangers seniors' access to care by cutting $575 billion from Medicare, secondly it puts bureaucrats between patients and doctors and thirdly, it costs the American taxpayer trillions. Just this month, the Congressional Budget Office stated that the law will cost $1.76 trillion dollars over the next ten years. Hopefully by this time next year, all of the President's health care will have been repealed and replaced with real reform."
