Rep. Paul Ryan: Health Care Law Was Sold on Three Broken Promises
The Republican-led House of Representatives has voted to repeal ObamaCare once again. Tonight on Hannity, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) weighed in on the importance of today’s vote. He said the law “was sold on three broken promises. One, it’s a tax on middle income taxpayers. Number two, President Obama said health care premiums will go down – no, they went up. They went up about $2,500 dollars. Number three, he said if you like the plan you have, you could keep it. Well now we’re finding out that millions of people are poised to lose their health insurance once this becomes effective.”
Rep. Ryan said, “We really believe that if these facts were known then, when it passed, it would have never passed.” He added that Republicans weren’t
successful in getting the Supreme Court to strike down the law and so now it’s up to the American people, “through their elected representatives, to repeal and replace this law.”
The congressman told Sean Hannity that there are two big tipping points that will be hard for the U.S. to get itself out of. He said one would be the debt crisis -- which will be a European-like situation -- and the other is a crisis of more people seeing the government as the provider of their livelihood.
