President: Fleming says Obamacare "the most dangerous piece of legislation"
“I don’t know what you want to call it, Mr. President, but I’ll stick with dangerous.”
Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after President Obama, in remarks today in Maryland, quoted Dr. Fleming’s assessment of Obamacare:
“Thank you, Mr. President, for helping to get my message out to the American people. I did say, ‘Obamacare is the most dangerous piece of legislation ever passed in Congress.’ I know you’re out trying to convince otherwise, but the American people know a bad law when they see it. Health insurance premiums will at least double for many Americans, employers are being forced to cut full-time jobs, and the administrative burden of Obamacare exchanges will cost our economy billions. I don’t know what you want to call it, Mr. President, but I’ll stick with dangerous.”
