Cornyn Statement on the Anniversary of ObamaCare
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) today issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of President Obama signing the health care bill into law:
“It seems like just yesterday President Obama and Congressional Democrats promised the American people that ObamaCare would increase coverage and lower costs. Now, just one year after ramming it through we are discovering the truth. Costs are skyrocketing, the federal government is ballooning, our national debt is through the roof, 15 million Americans are still looking for work, and middle class families and small businesses are paying higher taxes. I opposed ObamaCare because it taxed too much, spent too much, and borrowed too much. I voted to repeal it and will continue to fight against it for these same reasons and I will work to replace it with a plan that truly increases access to quality, affordable health care.”
Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services and Budget Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
