Senator Blunt: President Obama Is Doing The Least He Could Possibly Do To Help Americans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement today after President Barack Obama delivered remarks on the Affordable Care Act:

“Today’s announcement is literally the least the president could do in the wake of his broken promises. Unfortunately, millions of Americans will still find themselves facing fines without any realistic way to get health insurance as the president essentially shifts the blame to states and insurance companies.

“Americans deserve better than the ObamaCare train wreck, which is why I'm still fighting to replace this disastrous law with a system that puts patients and doctors in charge of their own health care -- not Washington bureaucrats.”

Yesterday, the Obama Administration released initial enrollment numbers for ObamaCare showing that fewer than 800 Missourians have successfully signed up for the president’s health care plan.

Senator Blunt spoke on the Senate floor this week and last week to share stories from Missourians impacted by ObamaCare and losing their health care plans despite President Obama’s promise that if you like your plan you can keep it.

    The Joplin school district is beginning to seek building plans for a new nine-to 14-million dollar preschool and daycare center. The push for more early learning can create competition for those already in the preschool business. State law now only requires students to go to school at kindergarten age but many believe learning begins much earlier. And the Missouri house and senate are both considering bills to reimburse districts for some students taking pre-kindergarten classes. Preschool...More >>
