Republican George Allen took the anniversary of healthcare reform to today to blast the Obama administration's efforts, calling the massive law a "monstrosity" that ignores the will of the American people.

  George Allen
Allen is running for his old Senate seat in Virginia, which he lost five years ago to Democrat Jim Webb.

Here is what Allen said about the one-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

“A year ago today President Obama ignored the objections of the American people and signed into law a $2.5 trillion health care monstrosity – one year later We the People are still being ignored. This unconstitutional, anti-jobs government mandate has resulted in a massive expansion of government, higher premiums, and rapidly growing debt. Twenty-eight states, including Virginia, are challenging the law for violating the constitutional rights and prerogatives of their citizens. It is clear to everyone but those in Washington that this is the wrong prescription to fix our health system. Before any more damage is done, we need to repeal and replace this monstrosity with reforms that will make health care more affordable and accessible for Virginia families and small businesses.”
