Rep. Andy Harris, M.D., Statement on the Two-Year Anniversary of President Obama's Health Care Law

March 26, 2012
Press Release

Rep. Andy Harris, M.D., released the following statement regarding the second anniversary of President Obama’s health care law:

“Two years ago, President Obama and Nancy Pelosi claimed that Obamacare would lower health care costs and immediately create 400,000 jobs. All it has actually done is raise health care premiums by over $2,000 and, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, potentially reduce the labor supply by 800,000 jobs, as a result of additional new taxes on business. The House voted to repeal the President’s Medicare rationing board –the IPAB- this week, but we must continue to be committed to repealing all of the dangerous and costly Obamacare law.”
