Chairman Gleason Releases Statement On The Fourth Anniversary Of Obamacare

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the fourth anniversary of Obamacare.

“Four years ago, President Obama and the Democrats rammed through legislation which created health care insecurity for millions of Americans and caused 250,000 Pennsylvanians to lose their health care coverage,” Gleason said. “Over the course of the past four years, Pennsylvanians have watched as Obamacare has hurt small businesses, costs jobs and separated families from their doctors. It seems like each time we pull back a layer of the Obamacare law, there is another disastrous consequence.

“Now, President Obama and the Democrats are ignoring the Constitution and delaying provisions of ObamaCare by fiat for blatant partisan political gain. No matter how hard the Democrats wish away their role in Obamacare, voters will hold them accountable for their role in this mess in November.”

According to the Governor’s Office, more than 250,000 Pennsylvanians have lost their health care coverage due to ObamaCare. (Office of the Governor, “Governor Corbett Calls on President Obama for Permanent Solutions to Affordable Care Act Issues and to Protect Pennsylvanians’ Health Care,” 11/14/13)
