WASHINGTON (CNN)– In the weekly Republican radio address, Senator John Cornyn touted a Republican health care plan "that will lower cost and expand access to care," while criticizing the president's plan, which he claims would "bust the budget."
"The Republicans want to save Medicare and Medicaid from bankruptcy by offering more choices to beneficiaries and making providers compete for their business," Sen. Cornyn said.
The Texas Senator said a Republican plan would work to lower coverage costs on a state level by increasing competition in the private insurance industry.
"So, instead of a top down plan that will bust the budget, President Obama should work with Republicans on a bottom up solution that the American people can support," Cornyn said.
In response to Cornyn's address the DNC released the following statement:
"In this week's GOP radio address, Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn reiterates the same debunked GOP talking points we've heard for weeks on end without offering a single GOP proposal to fix this country's broken health insurance system – not one. The truth is, the President's health insurance reforms will curb out-of-control costs, increase choice and competition, and strengthen our health insurance system so that Americans can keep the coverage they already have."
