Wasserman Schultz: Republicans "Engaging In Deception" On Health Care
"When it came to championing the health care legislation, President Obama made sure that al though everybody -- the vast majority of Americans have health insurance coverage, we want to make sure that if you're a free rider, if you roll the dice and get sick and use the emergency room as your primary access point for health care. Those health care costs are going to get shifted to all of us. And if you choose not to carry health insurance, this legislation says you're going to pay a small penalty so that we don't have to pay for you rolling the dice," DNC chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said on MSNBC today.
"That's what the health care reform law says and the Republicans are engaging in deception if they say anything else," she said.
