Enzi calls Obamacare 'unworkable, unaffordable'
"For millions of Americans, the law today represents nothing more than broken promises, higher costs and fewer choices,” Enzi said. “Most Americans still oppose this unprecedented expansion of government intrusion into health care decisions for hardworking families and small businesses.”
Enzi, who has introduced legislation to block the ACA, said spending for Obamacare has led to more than $1 trillion in new taxes -- the cost of which is being shouldered by the American people.
“For every American, Obamacare has meant more government, more bureaucracy and more rules and regulations, along with soaring health care costs and less access to care,” Enzi said. “Today, we take a crucial step forward in beginning to lift the burdens and higher costs this law has placed on all Americans. By the time we are done, the legislation the senate passes will eliminate more than $1 trillion in tax increases placed on the American people, while saving more than $500 billion in spending. Most importantly, this bill begins to build a bridge from the president’s broken promises to a better health care system for hardworking families across the country.”
Statistics from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) indicate the ACA will cost taxpayers more than $116 billion a year, and that in order to pay for it American families will pay more than $20,000 in new taxes over the course of the next decade.
