GOP: ObamaCare ‘the worst of all worlds’

Republicans are jumping on the news that ObamaCare premiums will rise nationwide to push a GOP alternative. 

{mosads}In the GOP weekly address, Rep. John Ratcliffe (Texas), bemoaned the news that premiums on the most common ObamaCare plan will rise nationwide, by an average of more than 20 percent.

“As you can see, ObamaCare is more than just another pile of broken promises. It’s the worst of all worlds. It’s higher costs and fewer choices. It’s less freedom and more government. It’s more uncertainty and less peace of mind. But there is a better way,” he said. 

Republicans have jumped on the mounting headlines of rising ObamaCare prices and fewer insurers on the marketplace.

“Our plan gives you more control so you can choose the plan that best fits your needs — not Washington’s mandates,” Ratcliffe said. “That means things like making it easier to take insurance from job to job. Giving small businesses more leverage to negotiate better rates. And finally allowing health insurance to be sold across state lines.”
