WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) released the following statement on Keep Your Health Plan Act.
“Today, the House voted to permit insurance companies to continue to offer current health care plans to their customers through 2014,”said Rep. Poe. “Today was my 46th vote to repeal or dismantle Obamacare and I remain opposed to this unworkable, unaffordable law. Over the past four years, the President has repeatedly tried to sell his nationalized health care law to the American people under the false promise that you can keep your health care plan if you like it. Now that Obamacare has been implemented, millions of Americans are finding out the hard way that the President’s promise was not the truth. Many Americans who were misled by the President simply cannot afford the more expensive, government-controlled health care plan.
Yesterday, President Obama declared in a press conference that he will not enforce the law on some individuals who have lost their plans. The President cannot pick and choose which parts of laws to enforce. It takes an act of Congress to change the law. That is why the House has acted today.”
