Supreme Court Case Latest Example of Obamacare Failures

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding today’s Supreme Court arguments on Obamacare:

“Across the street, the Supreme Court will hear arguments today in an important case.

“King v Burwell is the latest reminder of a law that’s as unwieldy as it is unworkable: Obamacare.

“Obamacare has been one rolling disaster after another for middle-class Americans.

“First, it attacked seniors by raiding Medicare to finance more government spending.

“Then it cancelled health plans for many who’d been told they’d be able to keep the plans they liked.

“And who could forget the website debacle?

“The hits have kept on coming ever since.

“Fewer choices. Higher costs. Increased tax burdens borne by the Middle Class.

“And even more headaches at tax time.

“In fact, we now know that the Obama Administration sent inaccurate Obamacare tax information to nearly a million people.

“So America’s Middle Class deserves a lot better than the hurt of Obamacare.

“Now, we’ve heard a lot of predictions about what might happen if the court finds for the plaintiffs in this case.
“But we’ve also seen Republican ideas about how to help Americans who may be harmed again by Obamacare’s broken promises. For instance, Republicans think it’s better to give Americans and states the freedom to choose what’s right for them, rather than trying to impose costly mandates from Washington like Obamacare.

“So, regardless of how the Supreme Court rules, I look forward to continuing to work with my Republican colleagues. Because while Obamacare is a law that’s all about higher costs and broken promises, Republicans think health care should be about helping middle-class Americans instead.”
