Statements about Health Care
The Supreme Court said the individual mandate "is a tax. So it's a tax."
The United States has "the best health care delivery system in the world."
"If you're one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance."
"Obamacare … means that for up to 20 million Americans, they will lose the insurance they currently have, the insurance that they like and they want to keep."
"Obamacare adds trillions to our deficits and to our national debt."
Obama "said (the individual mandate) wasn't a tax."
"Obamacare is . . . the largest tax increase in the history of the world."
"Romneycare covers abortion, illegal immigrants and has a public option. Obamacare does not."
"Only 2 percent of public high schools in the country offer PE classes."
Says under Mitt Romney, "Medicare could end as we know it, leaving Julia with nothing but a voucher to buy insurance, which means $6,350 extra per year for a similar plan."
"In 1993 the Republicans embraced a health platform that proudly features an individual mandate as its main component."
Says Barack Obama "is the only president to ever cut $500 billion from Medicare."
If the Supreme Court throws out the federal health care law, it "would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress."
"Polls show Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to Obamacare, especially the individual mandate."
"Up to 80 percent of small businesses will be forced to give up their current plans due to new Obamacare regulations."
President Barack Obama "reduced the cost of prescription drugs for nearly 3.6 million Americans in 2011."
Says that while President Barack Obama promised to "work with your employer to lower your premiums by $2,500 per family per year," his health care law "raises premiums in the individual market by $2,100 per family."
According to the Congressional Budget Office, "as many as 20 million Americans could lose their employer-based insurance thanks to Obamacare."
President Barack Obama is "ending Medicare as we know it."
The administration has issued rules for "$1 abortions in ObamaCare" and "requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay" an abortion premium.
