More bad news for the White House this week as the rocky rollout of the president’s signature law continues to generate broken promises.
On Tuesday, investigations by a subcommittee on which I serve revealed that senior Obama administration officials were aware of potential ObamaCare shortfalls as early as March. Even after Secretary Kathleen Sebelius received this warning, she told our Subcommittee on Health, “We have the federal hub on track and on time…I can tell you we are on track.”
This discovery comes only days after the president’s apology for misleading the American people when claiming, “If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.”
But it’s the second part of this broken promise that now has experts concerned. Reports confirm that the president’s pledge, “If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too,” may very well be the next broken promise. In fact, one former director of Medicare and Medicaid said that this claim, “…just wasn’t true.”
Republicans aren’t just calling out inconsistencies. We’re offering fair solutions. But instead of acknowledging our reforms that focus on areas of agreement, the Obama administration continues to defend their over-reaching, trillion-dollar law.
Now Mississippians are stuck navigating ObamaCare’s faulty implementation. Families are facing mandates. Businesses are saddled by new regulations.
But I refuse to give up. I’ll continue to fight for the full repeal of this law. No Mississippian should have to buy expensive insurance handpicked by the White House from a broken website.
