Kansas senator wants health care law abolished
March 19, 2012
To the editor:

As then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously said about health care reform, We have to pass the bill so you can find out whats in it.

Friday, March 23, 2012, marks the second anniversary of the new laws enactment.

In two years, weve found out the law cuts Medicare, raises billions in new taxes and increases premiums for families by $2,100 a year.

Weve found out many employers are dropping, and still more are planning to drop, the coverage they provide, so if you like what you have now you may not be able to keep it.

Weve found out the law is so unpopular that the government has granted more than 1,700 waivers to exempt labor unions and others from participation.

And, weve found out the laws mandates may be unconstitutional. Kansas and other states are challenging them before the Supreme Court later this month.

Thats why I am working to repeal health care reform. Its one anniversary I dont want to observe again.

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS)
