WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sensenbrenner released the following statement regarding the alarming indications that UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest health insurer, may be opting out of the Obamacare exchanges:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “UnitedHealth Group’s recent threats of leaving the Obamacare exchanges are not surprising, but they’re indicative of what we already knew –the Affordable Care Act is a disastrous policy that harms Americans. Increased deductibles, fewer options in healthcare providers, and a general lack of coverage are not only hurting American businesses, but also the most vulnerable in our society. This terrible initiative was doomed from its conception and should be completely repealed and replaced with a true, free-market system that would provide the first rate healthcare that our citizens need and deserve.”
