Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama's announcement today regarding the cancellation notices millions of Americans are receiving as a result of Obamacare.
"We are a nation of laws that requires our elected leaders and citizens to abide by the rule of law. It is of concern to my constituents that we have an administration that repeatedly seeks to change or circumvent the law by executive order. After misleading the American people for four years, it is extremely difficult for anyone to take President Obama at his word. That is why I support Chairman Upton's Keep Your Health Plan Act that will begin to provide peace of mind to some Americans who want to keep their health care plan. I have worked tirelessly to help craft common sense policies like the American Health Care Reform Act to ensure all Americans have access to affordable care. If the President is willing to work with Congress on real solutions to fix a health care law that even he now admits is plagued with failures, that is a discussion we'd be willing to have."
