Kirkpatrick ordered to defend ObamaCare by Nancy Pelosi

Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s 78-page memo orders House Democrats, like Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, to defend the fundamental flaws found in ObamaCare and its negative impact on families and small businesses. Pelosi’s ObamaCare “toolkit” even includes a section highlighting uninsured Americans by state – something ObamaCare will fail to fix.

Despite promises and assertions from President Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, 30 million Americans will continue to be uninsured after ObamaCare is fully implemented.

“Will Ann Kirkpatrick follow Nancy Pelosi’s orders and host press conferences to brag about ObamaCare when 30 million Americans will remain uninsured after it’s fully implemented?” asked NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Uninsured Arizona families and small businesses will be disappointed with Ann Kirkpatrick’s broken promises and defense of ObamaCare’s failures.”

Many people who buy their own health insurance could get surprises in the mail this fall: cancellation notices. (Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, “Like your health care policy? You may be losing it,” Associated Press, 5/29/13)
