McMorris Rodgers Reacts to Obamacare Enrollment Falling Well Behind Goals

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the Department of Health and Human Services released the latest Obamacare enrollment numbers. About 106,000 people in the U.S. signed up for private health insurance through the Affordable Care Act last month.

“The startlingly low Obamacare enrollment numbers released today only further reinforce the widespread failure of this law.  It has been six weeks since the launch of the President’s health care law – and with so few Americans choosing to enroll in the exchange, it’s clear that this is far more than just a broken website.  It’s a broken law.  Too many Americans have already received cancellation notices.  Too many Americans have lost their doctors.  And too many Americans don’t have affordable insurance options because of Obamacare.  We sincerely hope that today’s numbers will encourage the President to listen to these people and join our bipartisan effort to allow Americans to keep their plans.  He made a promise – now he should keep it.”
