Pelosi: Don’t Measure ACA by How Many Uninsured Get Insurance

Posted by on Apr 02, 2014 at 10:38 am

According to Pelosi, “The real reason to do the Affordable Care Act…was the cost of health care in our country was unsustainable — unsustainable to individuals, to small businesses, to corporate America, the competitive issue internationally, and also to state and local and certainly the federal budget.

“So what this legislation has done is it will save a trillion dollars over the lifetime of the bill, and it will — it will reduce costs for people. And even if they pay a little more in some cases, they’re getting much better care.”

“So this is about quality and affordability,” she repeated — “and the affordability, that’s why it has that name.”

“So that is what I think is the measure (of success).”

In urging Congress to tackle health care reform in Sept. 2009, President Obama talked about the “more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage.”
