Will any members of the “D Team” stand with them?
HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Vice President Joe Biden and Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the latter of whom will be taking part in a fundraiser on behalf of Democrat candidates Michael Parrish and Eric Strousse.
“Today, Vice President Joe Biden and Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi are visiting our state, where their support for ObamaCare has cost 250,000 families their insurance,” Gleason said. “Vice President Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi couldn’t wait to take credit for forcing government-run health care on Americans when ObamaCare passed, and they will continue to double down on this disaster.
“It is time for Michael Parrish and Eric Strousse to publicly declare that they would have voted for ObamaCare like their mentor Nancy Pelosi. They should further answer whether they agree that ObamaCare’s disastrous consequences aren’t Nancy Pelosi’s responsibility. And if so, would they place the blame for ObamaCare’s failings, including 2.5 million people projected to be out of work, at the feet of Joe Biden?
“It’s time for Democrats to accept responsibility for ObamaCare’s historic failures and work with Republicans to repeal this law and add commonsense to our healthcare system.”
When asked about the problems with the ObamaCare website recently, Nancy Pelosi replied that “It’s not my responsibility.”
A recent study released by the Congressional Budget Office estimated that 2.5 million people will lose their jobs due to ObamaCare. The White House responded by noting that Americans will no longer feel “trapped by a job.”
