Obamacare's Broken Promises

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. MESSER. Many of the promises that were made to justify ObamaCare have been broken.

Contrary to what was promised, not everyone will be able to keep their current health coverage; and contrary to what was promised, the average family premium has risen significantly, not dropped. The projected cost to taxpayers has skyrocketed despite assurances it wouldn't add a dime to our deficit. Worse yet, the really sick who can't find health care because of preexisting conditions are being denied promised help.

Lost coverage, higher premiums, more taxes, and bigger government--that's the reality of ObamaCare. Now one of the Senate's creators of ObamaCare is warning of the impending train wreck coming with the implementation of the health care exchanges next year.

Mr. Speaker, this Congress needs to derail ObamaCare and start making promises we can keep.
