Congressman Issa Statement on House Vote to Repeal Obamacare
Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) issued the following statement today following a 244-185 vote in the House of Representatives to repeal President Obama’s health care program:
“President Obama’s health care law so frightens job creators and Americans concerned about unwanted changes to their healthcare that the public continues to demand its repeal.
“As the Supreme Court recently affirmed, Obamacare is a tax and it was imposed amidst an extended recession, burying job creators in new red tape and saddling future generations with debt they cannot afford.
“Repeal of Obamacare is only one part of the process, however. Once this flawed health law has been repealed, Congress must work to enact vital health care reforms that protect doctor-patient relationships and ensure quality coverage for Americans who need it—without adding to the nation’s already significant debt.”
