Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding the four year anniversary of the President's health care law on March 23rd.
"Four years ago, Democrats in Washington were confident that the law that they forced through Congress would be extremely popular today. Instead, the law has broken almost every significant promise that President Obama made about it and Americans have been left to deal with the very serious consequences. Millions of Americans have personally discovered that they can't keep their coverage, can't afford their premiums, can't see their doctor and can't work as many hours.
"Today, the actual law doesn't even look the same because President Obama has lawlessly re-written almost all of it in a desperate attempt to save his legacy. The so-called "fixes' aren't working and Americans understand that the changes are based on saving politicians' careers instead of improving health care. Instead of continuing to implement a poorly written law that continues to fail Americans, we need to suspend it and start over. Washington needs to finally focus on improving access to quality, affordable health care for all Americans."
