We Must Move to Repeal and Replace President Obama’s Unaffordable and Unpopular Health Care Law

Patients and Families Must Come First

June 28, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C.–The Hispanic Leadership Fund released the following statement today from its President Mario H. Lopez, reacting to today Supreme Court ruling:

“The facts are that on every count, President Obama’s healthcare law has failed all Americans, including working Hispanic families that continue to bear the brunt of his economic policies.  Insurance premiums have gone up, job creation has gone down, and unaffordable and skyrocketing costs have only worsened.  And we now see that the entire law is contingent upon raising taxes on ordinary middle-class Americans, which reveals yet another broken promise by President Obama.

“There is no question that a full repeal and replacement of President Obama’s health care law is desperately needed.  The only way our health care system will improve is too have sensible, common-sense reform that empowers families and patients, and not unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats in Washington.
