GOP/REPUBLICAN NAT’L COMMITTEE www.gop.com

·        Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s address on ObamaCare this morning: “The President has a serious trust deficit with the American people after his lies about ObamaCare. He rushed a partisan bill through Congress, lied in selling it to the public, and the result is his administration's bungled rollout that is causing chaos and hurting Americans. At this point, more Americans received cancellation notices in the single state of North Carolina than were able to sign up nationwide. There can be no question now that ObamaCare is broken. The President seems to believe that he can rewrite the law whenever it’s politically expedient, but our Constitution says otherwise. I'd encourage the President to listen to frustrated Americans who are telling him that ObamaCare needs to be repealed and replaced with conservative solutions that will actually lower costs and fix the mess he has created.”
