In 2010, President Obama and the then Democratic-controlled Congress ignored the will of the people and rammed through one of the most expansive and invasive pieces of legislation in the history of the United States into law. Then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi said we would need to pass the bill to find out what it’s in it. Unfortunately, she was right. Nearly three years after its passage, we are only scratching the surface in understanding the scope and reach of Obamacare. As predicted, it means job loss, less innovation, higher premiums and more government. Hidden within those unread pages were twenty new or higher taxes that are blind to the class warfare rhetoric of Washington.
We must replace Obamacare with a system that allows portability, allows individuals to purchase health care across state lines, allows individuals to purchase the plan of their choice and includes tort reform. Real health care reform is about bringing down the cost of health care through free-market competition. Real health care reform is about giving families more choices, not less. It is not about empowering big government in which doctors and patients have little to say about the quality of care they receive.
Since Congress passed this law, I have made its repeal a top priority and I plan to continue this fight. I hope you will join me. The more we learn about this bill, the worse it becomes. Below you will find information on the consequences of Obamacare. If Obamacare's burdensome taxes and regulations are hurting your family or business, please share your story with us.
