Cassidy/Vitter Disappointed By Obamacare Enrollment Numbers

Congressmen Bill Cassidy says he's disappointed by the report that only 17,548 Louisianans have enrolled into health insurance plans through HealthCare.gov.
West Monroe -- Congressmen Bill Cassidy, M.D. responded to the report that only 17,548 Louisianans have enrolled into health insurance plans through HealthCare.gov. He released the following statement:

“Over five times as many Louisianans have lost their insurance compared to the 17,548 who have enrolled into Obamacare. This does not bode well for the long-term viability of the law. We need reforms which protect the health insurance choices made by Louisiana families. That is why I proposed the Health Insurance Accountability Act, which repeals Obamacare once it is certified that the uninsured population is larger than it was prior to Obamacare.”

Statement from Senator David Vitter:

"Across the country, Americans are realizing that the core of Obamacare is a train wreck, not just its website or rollout. Many more Americans have lost their previous health care policies than have enrolled in the Obamacare exchange. In Louisiana, it's at least 93,000 citizens who've lost coverage they had and wanted to keep compared to under 18,000 who've gotten coverage on the exchange. And that all comes with higher premiums, unexpected out-of-pocket costs, and diminished access to doctors that families know and like."
