HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the one-year anniversary of ObamaCare:
“One year after Democrats jammed government-run healthcare down our throats, ObamaCare remains more unpopular than ever in Pennsylvania,” Chairman Gleason said. “Just look at the election results last November, where Pennsylvanians fired Democrat Senator Arlen Specter and five Democrat members of Congress who voted for the bill, choosing their Democrat Party bosses over the needs and concerns of their constituents. Pennsylvanians chose a new direction by overwhelmingly supporting Tom Corbett for Governor who as Attorney General answered the call for repeal by joining 27 other states to fight for citizens’ rights by challenging ObamaCare’s constitutionality.
“This is one example of many where Republicans have stood with Pennsylvanians to voice loud opposition to reckless spending, excessive taxes, and irresponsible government. Pennsylvania’s delegation to Congress — U.S. Senator Pat Toomey and Congressmen Mike Kelly, G.T. Thompson, Jim Gerlach, Pat Meehan, Mike Fitzpatrick, Bill Shuster, Tom Marino, Lou Barletta, Charlie Dent, Joe Pitts, Tim Murphy, Todd Platts — continue to display real leadership by opposing the government’s takeover of healthcare which destroys jobs, raises taxes, interferes in the patient and doctor relationship, and spends even more money we don’t have.”
