the state of our union is…?
Last night we heard the President lay out his agenda for the next year. Today President Obama is in Pittsburgh discussing his economic achievements and plans for 2014.
When it comes to his signature healthcare law, commonly referred to as ObamaCare, Politifact singled out as the “lie of the year” his broken promises that Americans could keep their health coverage. Now, millions of Americans have lost access to their doctors, millions are watching their premiums spike, and millions are being dumped onto Medicaid, a broken program with the poorest health outcomes.
President Obama’s policies have done nothing to expand quality, patient-centered health care. What they have done is worsened outcomes for our most vulnerable and made it more difficult for them to get ahead.
In addition, ObamaCare has fueled a rapid increase in federal spending under President Obama which threatens to smother any future economic growth under a mountain of debt. There’s no hiding from the facts: Debt held by the public reached 73 percent of GDP in 2013, far higher than the 39 percent average seen over the past four decades.
Please join us in holding President Obama accountable for his lie of the year by going here today.
Thank you for all you do!
