Roskam Reacts to Low Obamacare Enrollment Numbers

WASHINGTON, DC – Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement responding to Obamacare’s individual marketplace exchange enrollment figures: 

“The low enrollment numbers in the Obamacare exchanges are one fifth of what was originally expected and it’s unclear that these so-called ‘enrolled individuals’ actually purchased a plan. Today’s announcement puts even more pressure on President Obama to keep his promise to the American people that if you like your healthcare plan you could keep it. Millions of Americans are being dropped from coverage that they liked and many are seeing their health care costs sky rocket. This week, Republicans and Democrats can come together to honor the president’s promise by voting for legislation that allows people to keep their current plans. The American people deserve better than this disastrous rollout and an Administration that continues to defend at all costs an inherently flawed and harmful law.”

Wheaton, your larger more vocal group is called section 8. You and Brian must be haring the same bong. Nothing but America hating and name calling. How about some FACTS to back up your drivel?

What is a bong? I have heard of a gong. Sorry, no section 8, oversized stand alone home. 3,100 square feet.

Almost completely paid for.

ADP jobs report for November, 215,000 jobs added, above analyst's expectations, October numbers revised upwards. Roskam certainly knows what is going on in the economy, with zero spin! NOT.
