(Atlanta, GA) – Following a report by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which estimates 65% of small businesses will experience insurance premium hikes under Obamacare, the Georgia Republican Party issued the following statements:
“February was a terrible month for Obamacare,” said Ryan Mahoney, spokesperson for the Georgia Republican Party. “First, the Congressional Budget Office projects that millions of jobs will disappear from the workforce because of the Affordable Care Act. Now, the Obama Administration admits that a majority of small businesses will see insurance rates rise thanks to the new healthcare legislation.
“But even with rising premiums, higher taxes, and fewer jobs, Atlanta liberals Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn continue to support President Obama and his failed healthcare legislation.
“Out-of-touch and out-of-control, they live in a liberal wonderland where business is bad, big government is good, and the needs of the people play second fiddle to their radical, left-wing policies.
“It’s abundantly clear that Sen. Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn are more concerned with satisfying their Party than serving the people. The only jobs they care about are their own.”
