WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) released this statement today responding to President Obama’s criticism of health care reform.
“It’s unrealistic to expect President Obama would acknowledge his signature issue is failing.
“It’s no surprise President Obama opposes sending money and power back to the states and closer to where the patients live. Obamacare was designed with the exact opposite goal in mind – which is to consolidate health care power and decision-making in Washington.
“Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson breaks that Obamacare mold by sending money and power back to the states, and closer to patients, to deliver quality health care. It's why our proposal continues to gain momentum and support.
“The Democratic Party is heavily invested in Washington controlling health care. Our last best chance to repeal and replace Obamacare is with Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson.”
