Brady: New CMS Reports Confirm Nearly 2 Million More Americans Dropped Out of Obamacare

June 12, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released two new reports showing a decline in enrollment and ongoing participation in Obamacare’s collapsing individual insurance marketplaces:

“These reports are further proof that Americans don’t want to buy what Obamacare is selling: expensive insurance that fails to meet their health care needs. So far this year, nearly 2 million more people didn’t keep their coverage through Obamacare’s individual insurance marketplace – in large part because of doubling premiums, dwindling choices, and less access to the care that’s right for them.

“As the Senate moves forward with our effort to repeal and replace this failing law, the House is continuing to take action this week with legislation that will protect and expand access to affordable, quality health care options for our veterans, workers, and families.”
