HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the President’s latest push for his government-run health care experiment.
“Today, the American people learned that, when it comes to reforming our health care system, President Obama and Washington Democrats are more concerned about ‘getting it done’ than getting it done right,” Gleason said. “Despite nearly a year of failed attempts to push their government-run health care experiment through Congress, Democrats refuse to stop and listen to Americans who have legitimate and substantive concerns about this cornerstone of an extremely liberal agenda.
“Over the past year, Democrats have employed closed-door meetings, late night votes and even taxpayer-funded bribes in an attempt to pass government-run health care, but to no avail. Now, President Obama is leading the charge of this last-ditch effort to pass legislation that will raise taxes, kill jobs and drive a government-sized wedge between patients and their doctors.
“President Obama may be saying that ‘now is the time to make a decision,’ but continues to ignore the fact that the American people have been soundly rejecting the Democrats’ government-run health care plan for nearly a year.”
