Boehner: “Problem with ObamaCare Isn’t Just the Website, It’s the Whole Law”
WASHINGTON, DC – At a press conference with Republican leaders today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) emphasized that the problems with the president’s health care law go far beyond the website, citing higher premiums, canceled policies, and small business’ reluctance to hire as just a few of the law’s most damaging consequences. Following are Boehner’s remarks:
“The problem with ObamaCare isn’t just the website – it’s the whole law.
“And I’ve heard from hundreds of my constituents who are seeing their premiums rise, they’re seeing their policies being canceled. Many, again, are losing their plans.
“You know, I was at a small business in my district last Friday. They’ve got 46 employees. They provide health care to their employees, scared to death though to hire anyone else because if they do, their whole plan is going to be subject to more government approval. They don’t want to do it. That’s why I said last week that ObamaCare’s like a wet blanket over our economy. American people are looking for more jobs, better wages, but with all the uncertainty around this law employers are having a very difficult time making decisions.
“It’s time to delay this. It’s time to fix this before it gets any worse.”
