Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway Statement: Scotus Health Care Decision's Impact on Young Americans
WASHINGTON (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway, former Chief of Staff for the US Department of Labor and former Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Resources for the Commonwealth of Virginia, has issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's decision today on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
"President Obama's health care law stands as one of the largest tax increases in American history, it will be paid for by young Americans, whose dreams and plans for the future have already been derailed by failed policies that have denied their access to full-time, meaningful jobs in their chosen career paths. Young adults know they will pay the true costs of President Obama's legislation -- over a trillion dollars more in federal spending, more waste and fraud, increased American debt, and the inability to keep or choose healthcare plans that best suit their needs as individuals. Elections have consequences, and young adults will be organizing themselves far more actively than some might assume -- they will not settle for leadership that ignores their concerns, limits their freedoms, and continues to bankrupt their futures."
