Gus Bilirakis: Obamacare was ‘Never Ready for Prime Time’
From his perch on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Fla., turned up the heat on President Barack Obama’s federal health-care law on Friday.
Bilirakis supported the Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act which includes elements from his One Hour Notification Act ensuring the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies Americans when their security has been compromised through the health-care website.
“Contrary to the very promises Obamacare was sold on, my constituents have lost their health care coverage, have seen their premiums rise, and were forced to choose new doctors under the law,” said Bilirakis on Friday. “Now, they’re faced with concerns regarding their personal information and whether it is compromised — all because the president’s signature law was never ready for prime time.”
