Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Thune (R-S.D.), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following comment regarding President Obama’s latest ObamaCare sales pitch:

“The harsh reality facing many this holiday season is cancelled policies, spiking premiums, skyrocketing deductibles, and loss of access to their doctors. But instead of offering relief to millions of Americans suffering under his health care law, the president is offering another taxpayer-funded marketing campaign to try to convince them ObamaCare isn’t as bad as it actually is. The American people don’t need more White House speeches—they just need a break from this broken law.”


  1. Lora Hubbel says:

    Didn’t he vote for cloture so the continual funding of ObamaCare would only take a simple majority rather than a 2/3 vote? Come on a little help here…I can’t say too much since I’m running for Governor and against a lot of Republican policies that actually saved ObamaCare from extinction. I just read Round’s campaign letter where he says how bad ObamaCare is also…when he had bill for a State HealthCare Exchange, the individual mandate AND he currently works with Tom Daschle (architect of Obama/care) at the Bipartisan Policy Center advancing ObamaCare policy AS WE SPEAK. Surely Im not the only one who sees this type of hypocrisy.

    • Bob Ellis says:

      I believe you’re right. If Republicans REALLY wanted to stop ObamaCare, they had the perfect opportunity to do so in early October. They chose to capitulate instead.

      Saying the right thing is good; doing the right thing is infinitely better.
