House Majority Leader Eric Cantor delivered the following remarks at the weekly Republican Leadership Press Conference:
“The American people are very, very worried. Moms and Dads are worried that they are going to lose the health plan – the one that they have and they like. They are worried they won’t actually be able to go to the same pediatrician they want their children to go to. Young adults are now witnessing the increase in their health care costs and they are wondering if they will even be able to afford a basic policy. Individuals who are going the healthcare.gov website are beginning to fear that perhaps their identity will be stolen.
“Millions of Americans, we know now, are receiving cancellation notices from insurance companies. The President broke a major promise to the American people, and now it is hard for them to trust any assurances under this law. We’ve heard the President say he didn’t know about the problems with the website, but yet a report has just come out and said that there were warning signs throughout the White House from a report back in March that there was going to be a problem with the roll out of this health care law.
“Now, Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats were some of the architects of ObamaCare, they helped design this law. Last week, thirty-nine of them joined us in trying to help Americans who are being hurt under this law. It is time for the Senate to joint hem, and join us, and act to help protect the American people.”
