TRANSCRIPT:

“It’s another day and a new glitch for the Obamacare rollout. That is why only 12 percent of Americans in a new CBS poll say that it is going well and more than half believe it is not. As I listened to the President during his press conference say that ‘we will handle it, we will fix it,’ it reminded me of the moment when he was proposing Obamacare and said, ‘if you have health care and you like it, you can keep it.’  It’s not a glitch when an American citizen receives a letter that says they will no longer have their current health care. Many of my constituents that I see share their frustration that it is not fair they cannot keep the health care they have, and if they go on the website they cannot see what they can have now. So, when you look back at our arguments, complaints, and requests for accountability – none of this will go away.  The focus will now be on where is the accountability and where are the answers?”
