Yesterday President Obama interviewed with an Iowa TV station at the White House and seemed confused to learn that ObamaCare is hurting an area job creator’s ability to grow and hire:
KTIV: “One of those businesses that I mentioned said very specifically when they said they needed to close up shop and move their jobs back to Wisconsin was that it was a direct result of the health care reform that you initiated, that Congress passed. How do you react to that?”
President Obama: “Yeah, that would be kind of hard to explain, because the only folks that have been impacted in terms of the health care bill are insurance companies who are required to make sure that they’re providing preventive care, or they’re not dropping your coverage when you get sick. And so, this particular company probably wouldn’t have been impacted by that. I know that there’s a perception sometimes that there’s all kinds of regulations coming out of Washington, the truth is actually we’ve seen fewer regulations coming out of my administration than the previous administration. But obviously, you know it’s tough running a small business no matter what. And we’re going to make sure that we continue to provide whatever financing help that we can provide.”
Perhaps the White House was too busy coordinating its multi-million dollar ObamaCare ad campaign with big drug companies to listen, but Americans have been voicing their concerns since day one about how the President’s health care law would increase costs, reduce quality of care, and make it harder for small businesses to create jobs – and a broad majority continue to want it repealed today. House Republicans have been listening, and last week voted for the 30th time to repeal, defund or dismantle the law, and won’t let up until ObamaCare is repealed in its entirety.
