Toomey Delivers Weekly Republican Address

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) had the honor of delivering the weekly Republican address over the weekend.

Toomey used the platform to talk about how his wife, Chris, tried and failed repeatedly to enroll on the health care exchange website last week. The Senator spoke about how her frustrations are indicative of the larger inefficiencies with this system.

“Well, I tell you, I really wish this was the case of a member of Congress just out of touch,” Tomey said. “Unfortunately, it’s not. The fiasco my wife just faced with the health care website is being experienced by Americans across the country when they try to sign up for health insurance.”

Toomey further capitalized on the situation by arguing that issues with the websites are only part of a larger problem with the law.

“The problem with Obamacare isn’t just a glitch. It’s fundamental, and it’s taking away our freedom. I think Americans should be free to choose the insurance coverage that’s right for them. That choice should not be in the hands of the Obama administration, or at the mercy of malfunctioning government websites.

This is the fourth time in the last five weeks that the GOP address focuses on Obamacare. It is clear that the issues surrounding the rollout ensure that this hot button issue isn’t going away anytime soon.

  1. Ron,
    when a democrat ends a statement with “period” I’m suspect. I liked my healthcare plan and got a cancelation notice 11/30/13. Period.
    “…IF Obamacare works they’re doomed. Period.”???
    More like…Obamacare DOESN’T work and the DEMOCRATS are doomed.

    And Jim,
    I tried to find that plan on healthcare.gov, but it crashed 🙁

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  2. What do you expect Toomey to say? He and every other Republican know that if Obamacare works they’re doomed. Period.

  3. The only good thing I can say about Toomey – he’s not as bad as Santorum! But he will be defeated by Kathleen Kane!

  4. jim brewer – very classy move during this holiday to help Mrs. Toomey out. I would hate to see the poor lady go without health insurance coverage.

  5. I’m real sorry Senator Toomey’s software engineer wife had such trouble signing up. The Toomey’s don’t qualify for a subsidy, so they can just go to the insurer and sign up.

    I see fifty policies available for the Toomey family starting for as little as $755 per month. I recommend a nice Blue Cross Blue Shield Gold policy for about $1,050 per month.
