The president’s health care law is an unmanageable disaster that will increase health care costs, restrict access to quality care and bankrupt our nation. It now is time for the Democratic-controlled Senate to hear the pleas of the American people and join House Republicans in defunding this law that should never have been passed in the first place.”
The legislation is expected to be voted on Friday.
