Rep Kelly Blasts Senate Majority Leader

- Representative Mike Kelly, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee issued the following statement today in response to what he says are the false claims made yesterday in a floor speech by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) that in regard to the “horror stories being told” about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), “All of them are untrue.”

“Just when I thought the Leader of the Senate couldn’t possibly become more out of touch with the American people, he regrettably proves me wrong by claiming that all of the tragic stories currently unfolding from coast are coast due to Obamacare are somehow fake,

Harry Reid is attacking the integrity of countless victims of a terrible law that he helped force onto a country that never wanted it.

Having heard from so many of my constituents about the personal consequences that the health care law is having on their lives, I cannot help but find Mr. Reid’s remarks profoundly insulting.

Perhaps if he truly believes what he has said, he could pick up the phone and console those in my District injured by the law – from a mother and daughter in Hermitage to a small business owner in Fairview to a waitress in Butler – and convince them that all their higher premiums, reduced hours, and cancelled plans are just the products of their imagination.

Otherwise, he should reconsider his offensive charge and confront the brutal effects that Obamacare is having on our nation and work with my colleagues to forge a solution.”
