SEN. TOOMEY ISSUES STATEMENT ON OBAMACARE ENROLLMENT NUMBERS
"The whole law is unworkable."
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding the announcement by the Obama administration of the Affordable Care Act enrollment numbers.
"Today’s enrollment numbers are further evidence that the President’s health care law is a train wreck in the making. Even more troubling are the millions who are losing health coverage they like because the President deemed those plans inadequate and failed to make good on his promise that ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it.’ To make matters worse, these newly uninsured – including many Pennsylvanians – are not able to obtain new coverage online because the Obamacare website is not functioning adequately.
"The faulty website is only the tip of the iceberg. It’s not technical glitches that will doom this system, it is the fact that the President’s health care law forces people to buy overpriced health plans they don’t want, hikes taxes, and puts important, personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians and bureaucrats instead of patients and their doctors. The whole law is unworkable."
