WASHINGTON (CNN)– In the weekly Republican address, Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson said the Democrats’ approach to health care is "the wrong approach for our families."
"The kind of massive tax increases proposed by the Democrats is exactly the wrong approach for our families, our small businesses and our economy, especially in a recession," Isakson said.
"Republicans believe the key to reforming health care is strengthening the doctor-patient relationship by using choice and competition – rather than rationing and restrictions – to contain costs and ensure access to affordable health care," he continued.
The Democratic National Committee released the following response to Sen. Isakson's health care claims:
"It's a good thing the GOP continues to rotate messengers for their weekly address since the message certainly isn't changing. This week, GOP Senator Johnny Isakson continues to float the same debunked GOP lies and mistruths that Republican have repeated for weeks – apparently with new hope that their tired message will resonate with the American public."
