Texas Congressman Kevin Brady, Chairman of the Ways & Means Health Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the third anniversary of the Affordable Care Act:
"The President's new health care law is frightening for many patients, small businesses, and local doctors and hospitals. On its third anniversary it's becoming clear that health care is growing even more expensive, millions of Americans are expected to lose their insurance at work, many businesses will be forced to drop their plans and our elderly face a shortage of doctors and higher Medicare costs - all due to the new law."
"Regrettably, with the president and Democrats controlling two-thirds of Washington, it's an uphill battle to change it. But if those who defend this new law truly cared about getting government out of the examination room and lowering health costs for families and local businesses, they would quickly join with Republicans to replace it with patient-centered health care that's affordable and allows Americans to keep the coverage they have and want, especially senior citizens."
