Democratic Gubernatorial Candidates Silent On ObamaCare Election Delay

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason was not surprised to learn of the Obama Administration’s plans to delay another ObamaCare provision until after the November election.

“If only Pennsylvanians could run and hide from the consequences of ObamaCare as the Democrats are trying to do,” Gleason said. “Instead of working to prevent millions of health care cancellations, Democrats want to kick the ObamaCare can down the road until after the November elections.

“If the election were held in December, would Democrats allow Americans to keep their health care plans for another month? What time do Democrats feel is the ‘right’ time for millions of Americans, including 250,000 Pennsylvanians, to lose their doctors?

“Every single one of the Democratic gubernatorial candidates has supported ObamaCare, even after learning that it would cost 250,000 Pennsylvanians their doctors. Their collective silence proves that Democrats are more concerned about the political consequences of ObamaCare than its effect on Pennsylvania families.”

Today, an article appeared in The Hill newspaper reported that the White House will be delaying another ObamaCare provision in order to “eas[es] election pressure on Democrats.” (Elise Viebeck, “New ObamaCare delay to help Democrats in midterm elections,” The Hill, 3/3/2014)
