DCCC Statement on President Obama’s Remarks Today on the Affordable Care Act

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement regarding President Obama’s remarks today on the Affordable Care Act and the costs of Republicans’ repeal.

“Today the President made crystal clear the high cost the American people will pay for the House Republicans’ obsession with repealing the Affordable Care Act, sending us backward to the days when insurance companies were free to raise rates, drop coverage and deny care. House Democrats are committed to fixing and improving the law so that it works for the American people, but we cannot afford to go back to the old broken system that led hardworking Americans into bankruptcy and gave insurance companies unchecked power to do whatever they wanted. From denying coverage to millions of children with preexisting conditions to ending critical cost savings that are bringing down prices for all Americans, Republicans will have to defend the costs of their obsessive repeal from now until Election Day.”
