With the New Year in full swing, Obamacare is continuing to have a devastating impact on many folks across East Alabama.
Working families are seeing rising premium costs. Others are being forced into new insurance plans with different coverage, less choice and fewer doctors.
President Obama’s broken promise, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” continues ringing in our ears, but those words still remain untrue.
Hard-working folks should be able to keep their current plans and doctors they know and trust. When it comes to our personal health, wouldn’t we know what is best for us over what the Obamacare bureaucrats think is best for us?
Obamacare is a train wreck and I have voted repeatedly to repeal, de-fund, dismantle or delay it. It just won’t work.
As Congress started the Second Session of the 113th Congress last week, I was able to support another piece of legislation that would help fix yet another disastrous part of Obamacare.
H.R. 3811, Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014, which passed the House, would require that individuals be notified by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) within 48 hours of any breach of security of their personal information under the Federal or state exchanges.
This legislation simply instructs the Federal government to alert those who may be susceptible to identity theft because of government-run health care sites.
Yet President Obama issued a veto threat to this legislation that alerts the American public when an unsecured government website loses personal and confidential information. Why? Perhaps the law’s supporters are afraid to debate any changes because they’re afraid it could get repealed altogether.
