From a press release:
“U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., called on the Senate to pass the Restoring Americans’ Health Care Freedom Reconciliation Act, which would repeal the president’s disastrous health care law known informally as Obamacare. During remarks on the Senate floor, Isakson highlighted the plight of Georgia families facing higher premiums, higher deductibles and reduced health care coverage because of Obamacare.”
Secondly, I had a young couple in Smyrna, Georgia, who wanted to plan for their retirement, start saving in their early years of productivity. They recently received notice from their insurance company their premium is going from $670 a month to $1,379 a month, over a 100 percent increase. Where is that money coming from? They are having to reduce their savings for retirement just to pay the Obamacare premium and get less of a benefit because their deductible is going from $2,000 to $4,000.
The promise of lower cost health care and better benefits was exactly wrong. What the American people were promised was wrong.
I’m proud that Senator Enzi, Senator Alexander and others have led this reconciliation vote to repeal Obamacare. It’s time the American people got the truth — better coverage, but lower cost — the good old-fashioned way with a private competitive system.”
The video of his remarks can be seen after the break.
