Alexander Statement on the One-Year Anniversary of the Health Care Law

Posted on March 22, 2011

MARYVILLE – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement regarding the one-year anniversary of the President signing the health care bill into law on March 23:

“At last year’s health care summit, I said to the President that his health care bill would raise individual premiums, but he insisted, ‘that’s just not the case.’ Today, individual premiums are increasing, taxes are going up, and Medicare is getting cut. I will continue working to repeal this law and replace it with reforms that lower costs step-by-step so more people can afford insurance, rather than expanding a system that already costs too much.”
