United States Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius appeared in New Orleans today with Mayor Landrieu, to try and save face on the disastrous roll out of Obamacare and hopefully get folks enrolled in the program. However, notably absent from the event was Senator Mary Landrieu.
Here is the response from the RNC on Landrieu's lack of involvement in the event:
“With enrollment nearly over, President Obama and Mary Landrieu’s disastrous health care law has resulted in more health plan cancellation notices in Louisiana than it has provided coverage to the uninsured. Instead of offering political spin, Senator Landrieu and Secretary Sebelius need to answer for why they mislead Louisianans about being able to keep their health care.” – RNC spokesman Michael Short
Senator Landrieu may want to hide from events touting the law, for which she was the deciding vote on, but questions need to be answered.
"Share" this with your friends, and demand answers from Secretary Sebelius and Mary Landrieu!
According To Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon, 92,739 People Have Received Notices That Their Insurance Would Be Cancelled Due To ObamaCare. “His policy is among the 92,793 individual insurance plans that Louisiana Commissioner of Insurance Jim Donelon reported would be discontinued because the coverage does not meet the coverage standards set by the federal Affordable Care Act.” (Michelle Millhollon and Jordan Blum, “Business Owners Complain About Health Plan Changes,” The Advocate, 11/7/13)
