October 2, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today (Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016), U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding a new legal opinion issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) that found the Obama administration unlawfully diverted taxpayer dollars to fund the Obamacare reinsurance program.
"Today, the Comptroller General of the United States ruled that the Obama administration can no longer take money from taxpayers to bail out Obamacare. This is a major victory for the American people who are suffering with higher premiums and fewer choices because of this failed law. The administration should end this illegal scheme immediately, and focus on providing relief from the burdens of this law."
