“Iowans and all Americans deserve real solutions for a quality, affordable health care system”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) released the following statement on the fifth anniversary of ObamaCare:

“In the five years since ObamaCare was signed into law, Iowans and folks across the country have struggled with the painful effects of this poorly conceived and drafted law. Many Americans have faced rising premiums, increased out of pocket costs, been forced off of their health care plans, or have lost their doctors.

“Iowans and all Americans deserve real solutions for a quality, affordable health care system –– which is why I’m working on reforms that address the many failures of ObamaCare. We must repeal and replace ObamaCare in order to craft and implement real solutions for affordable, patient centered health care.”

Senator Ernst previously announced her co-sponsorship of full-repeal of ObamaCare. She also co-sponsored two bills, the Forty Hours Is Full Time Act of 2015 (S.30) and the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act (S.141), that correct flaws within the failed health care law.
