Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., a long time opponent of President Obama’s signature health care bill, criticized Senate Majority Harry Reid, D-Nev. leader for calling Obamacare “wonderful for America.”
Reid made his comments during an interview on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”
“If the law was wonderful, it wouldn’t increase premiums, shrink paychecks and discourage job creation,” Barrasso said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “If the law was wonderful, it wouldn’t put the broken IRS in between Americans and their health care providers. If the law was wonderful, the administration wouldn’t have delayed a critical component of it.”
Barrasso pointed out that it was time for both Obama and Reid to start listening to the American people who were concerned about the law and suggested that it was time to repeal the costly legislation.
Barasso added that “it’s time President Obama and Senator Reid to listen to the victims of Obamacare and permanently delay this costly failure.”
