Washington, DC—Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, released the following statement in response to a recent report from the insurance industry criticizing The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
“As Senate Democrats move closer to fixing our broken health system, the insurance industry continues their ‘say anything’ strategy to deceive the public. So far, all we’ve gotten from the defenders of our broken health system is a series of misleading reports, scare tactics and an obstruction manual. They still have no plan to fix our broken system, no plan to curb the abuses within the insurance industry and no plan to combat skyrocketing health care costs.
“These insurers and their defenders are scrambling to stand in the way of progress. But their campaign of deception and distortion will not derail our efforts because Americans’ strong desire for reform grows with each passing day.”
