Boehner: Low Enrollment Numbers Prove That People Should Be Able To Keep Plans


House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Wednesday that the low number of people who have enrolled in the Affordable Care Act should move President Obama to let people keep their indvidual marketplace health plans.

Full statement below:

These numbers underscore the urgent need for President Obama to allow people to keep the plans they have and like. The president says he is sorry but has taken no action to right his wrong. Millions of Americans are being told their health coverage is canceled at the same time that they are shut out of the government website. And even if they do manage to navigate the system, many are being rewarded with sticker shock, not the lower prices the president promised.

Above all, this report is a symbol of the failure of the president’s health care law. It is a rolling calamity that must be scrapped.”
