Boehner: White House Health Care Report More Smoke & Mirrors

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement on the health care report released today by the President’s Council of Economic Advisors:

“This report is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Everyone agrees that reducing the cost of health care would benefit our economy, but the Administration hasn’t offered a credible plan to do so without raising taxes or rationing care. Republicans want to work with the President and Democrats in Congress to ensure that every American has access to affordable, high-quality health coverage. But this 56-page press release lacks any real answers about how the Administration will deliver promised savings and improve Americans’ health care.

“One thing is clear: We don’t need a government takeover of health care that raises taxes, rations care, and puts government bureaucrats in control of decisions that should be made by families and doctors. The American people are asking for common sense solutions, not more photo-ops that produce a good headline but make no real difference to the millions of Americans struggling to pay for their health care coverage. Congress should be working together to improve access to quality health care, reduce skyrocketing costs, and fix what’s broken.”
