WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement today after the Obama Administration released initial enrollment numbers for ObamaCare:
"Fewer than 800 Missourians have successfully signed up for the president's health care plan while millions of Americans are being forced to lose their current coverage. That's appalling, and it simply confirms what we already knew: ObamaCare is a train wreck.
"President Obama should keep his promise to the American people and make the health care system work again – a system that for most people was working a year ago, and for a whole lot of people, won’t be working a year from now."
Senator Blunt spoke on the Senate floor today and last week to share stories from Missourians losing their health care plans despite President Obama’s promise that if you like your health care plan you can keep it. At the Senate Republican Leadership Stakeout today, Blunt highlighted the story of a young Missourian with a pre-existing condition, who is one of many in the high risk pools that will be terminated under ObamaCare.# # #
