Oversight Committee Announces Witnesses for Arizona Field Hearing on Affordable Care Act

December 3, 2013

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) today announced the witness list for the Arizona field hearing, “ObamaCare Implementation, The Broken Promise: If You Like Your Current Plan You Can Keep It.”  This is the third in a series of field hearings on ObamaCare’s impact on Americans. These hearings will examine a variety of issues about Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation including the cost of increased premiums for healthcare coverage and reduced choice for Americans.

“As a result of ObamaCare, Arizonans are seeing their insurance go up an average of 51%,” said Chairman Issa. “While the President promised that if ‘you liked your healthcare you could keep it,’ millions of Americans have received notices that they will lose the plans they liked and had thought were affordable. This hearing will examine how the cost and quality of healthcare is changing under the President’s unaffordable landmark legislative achievement.”

“I want to know how this terrible law is hurting my constituents personally, so we can show President Obama and Senate Democrats the damage ObamaCare is inflicting in Arizona,” said Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS (R-AZ). “We are listening.”
