‘Obamacare is not health care and we shouldn’t bail it out with tax dollars’

‘If Democrats want to bail out Obamacare they should be forced to enroll in the exchanges’

WASHINGTON -- Staffers in the Washington, D.C. office of Congressman Steve Stockman voted unanimously Tuesday to reject enrollment in the District of Columbia’s Obamacare exchange.

“Everyone in our office voted to reject enrollment.  We will not use taxpayer money to bail out a program that subsidizes abortion,” said Stockman of the D.C. exchange.  “Obamacare is a failing Ponzi scheme that can only work if it overcharges young people and denies care to older people.  Obamacare is not health care and we shouldn’t bail it out with tax dollars.”

“Instead of forcing more people into failed Obamacare I am supporting Rep. Darrel Issa’s HR 3319 to give all Americans access to the same kind of care members of Congress get,” said Stockman.  The bill would allow all Americans to enroll in the Federal Employees Health Benefit Program.
“Here’s my double-dog-dare offer to politicians still backing Obamacare, give your constituents your health care plan and you enroll in the exchanges,” said Stockman.  “If Democrats want to bail out Obamacare they should be forced to enroll in the exchanges.”
