PA GOP Chairman Applauds Governor Corbett For Rejecting Obamacare Exchanges

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement applauding Governor Corbett for rejecting ObamaCare’s state-based healthcare exchanges:

“ObamaCare is nothing more than a massive tax that increases healthcare costs and puts the federal government between patients and their doctors, and by refusing to participate in ObamaCare’s state-based exchanges, Governor Corbett took an important step today to shield Pennsylvanians from the President’s healthcare debacle.”

“Tom Corbett believes our healthcare system can be reformed, but expanding government bureaucracy to create a system that forces costs to go up while quality goes down is not the answer. ObamaCare is bad policy and bad law, and I applaud Governor Corbett for standing up to the President’s takeover of our healthcare system.”
