Speaking on the House Floor to Repeal Obamacare
May 17, 2013
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The house will again vote to address the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Critics say that we're tilting at wind mills. Let's review. In the last month we heard the Senator who authored the law, referred to it as a coming train wreck. That's right. He called it a train wreck. We've heard from the administration official responsible for helping set up the insurance exchanges worry that the public might be in for a third world experience as they try to find health care. Oh, and let us not forget some of the very same members of congress who voted to foist this massive overreach on Americans are now trying to find ways to exempt themselves and their staffs from its effects. Let's look at the check list, shall we? Premiums shooting up, check. Small businesses hiring fewer workers and jobs being lost, check. Employees seeing their hours cut, check. Faulty cost projections, check. Everything that opponents of this law listed as a reason to vote against this example of government overreach is occurring and happening. Tilting at wind mills? Hardly. Working to protect the american people from a disruptive law? Certainly. Thank you and I yield back.
