Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (R-NC-02) released the following statement from her office in Washington:
"House Republicans all expected that Obamacare was never ready for primetime, but if the numbers released today are accurate, the law is truly collapsing quicker than anyone would have imagined. At this rate, Obamacare is destined to go bankrupt and will have disastrous effects on the American economy, the health care industry, and millions of Americans and their families."
"Furthermore, the Obama Administration has claimed over and over again that they did not have these enrollment numbers, which would mean that they have willfully misled Congress and the American people. For months, HHS, IRS, CMS and all other elements of the federal bureaucracy have promised in hearings, interviews and testimony that they were certain that the massive program would be ready on October 1st. Yet here we are, witnessing failure each and every day since it was launched. This law was never ready for primetime and never will be."
