More bad news for the White House this week as the rocky rollout of the president’s signature law continues to generate broken promises. 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.
We’ve all heard it: “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” Time and again, you were promised by the Obama administration that if you like your health coverage, you could continue the plan. But with each news cycle, the president’s anecdotal promises are falling flat. Just how bad is it? So bad that the president had to apologize for misleading the American public.
The cabinet secretary in charge of the Obama administration's signature health law admitted to some of the law’s shortfalls today. But when I asked Secretary Kathleen Sebelius if the president is ultimately responsible for ObamaCare’s failures, she answered, "Whatever."
Congress has to figure out a way to overcome physician shortages and reach underserved patients. The answer to this problem isn’t some far-reaching law like ObamaCare, which saddles families and businesses with new tax increases and mandates. Instead, we should begin by strengthening Medicare and enhancing Medicaid through expanded telemedicine coverage.
