Boehner Raises Questions About White House Announcement on Health Care

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) yesterday issued the following statement on the health policy savings announced by the White House:

“Republicans want to work with Democrats to ensure every American has access to affordable, high quality health coverage. We support some of the voluntary reforms announced today, including increasing the use of modern information technologies to lower health care costs, and we hope they move forward. But today’s announcement promises savings with no concrete plan to achieve them and no enforcement mechanism if they don’t. The Administration has yet to answer the fundamental question of how to pay for its massive multi-trillion health dollar care plan. Will the Administration raise taxes on families and small businesses? Will it ration care so that families and seniors face long waits for medical treatment? Will it borrow even more money and pass the debt on to our kids and grandkids?

“Our House Republican solutions group is working on our vision of health care reform to make quality health care coverage affordable and accessible for every American, and we hope the ideas this group produces will be considered by the President as this debate goes forward.”
