Coats Critical of Latest Obama Health Care Fix
Indiana Senator Dan Coats is critical of President Obama’s latest fix for his health care overhaul plan.
The President announced Thursday that he wants to allow people with canceled health insurance policies to retain those policies for another year.
Coats says President Obama’s announcement is yet another indication that the administration is beginning to see the reality of their disastrous, one-size-fits-all, government-run health care system.
According to the Congressional Research Service, President Obama already has signed 14 laws and has taken five independent steps to change or repeal parts of his own health care law.
More than 4.2 million Americans have had their health care insurance plans cancelled because of Obamacare, including approximately 108,000 Hoosiers.
Coats says as long as Obamacare remains in place, Hoosiers will face the threat of losing their current health coverage, losing access to their doctors and paying higher premiums and tax penalties.
He says a real ‘fix’ for Hoosiers and Americans would be to start over on real, bipartisan reforms that deliver affordable, quality health care.
