Statement by Gov. Perry on Today’s Obamacare Announcement

Thursday, November 14, 2013  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama's announcement today on Obamacare:

"This is a staggering display of a reckless president cavalierly instructing states to ignore federal law. President Obama is shifting the blame by saying it's up to states and state insurance commissioners to fix the massive problem his signature law has created for millions of Americans who are losing their health insurance. President Obama did succeed at one thing today: making a bad situation worse with a ‘fix' that will create more confusion for consumers and threatens to destabilize the health insurance industry. Obamacare is an abject failure; it's time to overturn this ill-conceived, job-killing nightmare that ultimately will bankrupt this country."
