Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement on the Obama Administration’s latest decision to offer hardship exemptions to those individuals whose health care plans were cancelled due to the broken promises of Obamacare (PolitiFact 2013 Lie of the Year).

“We asked Secretary Sebelius point blank what would be the next holiday surprise, and she was silent. Yet, here we are with another major policy shift. The sad reality is that when the law takes effect come January 1, more Americans will be without coverage under Obamacare than one year ago. What's worse, the administration knew millions of plans would be cancelled, but the president kept repeating his solemn promises knowing they would not be kept. Less than two weeks from going live, the White House seems to be in full panic mode. No bandaid can heal the hemorrhaging this law has and will continue to cause. Rather than more White House delays, waivers, and exemptions, the administration should provide all Americans relief from its failed law.”
