The U.S, House of Representatives took action today for the full repeal of Obamacare. Republicans stood united in voting to let Obama know their constituents cannot stomach any more government intrusion.
U.S. House Representative from Virginia, Dave Brat, delivered words of wisdom to the idealogue of the White House.
Congressman Brat spoke about the negative economic impact of Obamacare. It's impact on American families and business owners who need lower cost health care they can afford.
Here is an excerpt of Congressman Brat's speech:
“Obamacare came with many promises, but the American people are finally getting the bill in the mail, and they don’t like what they see. We were promised lower costs, but we’ve seen most premiums and deductibles only skyrocket. Almost nine out of 10 people who buy insurance on an Obamacare exchange need a government subsidy just to afford it."
“As I’ve traveled my district, I’ve talked with countless small business owners who think of their employees like family and already provide health coverage for their fine workers. But now that Obamacare is forcing them to buy more expensive insurance, many are having to lay off their own employees or convert them to part time to avoid these skyrocketing costs."
“At a time when we should be growing the economy, Obamacare is forcing businesses to lay off people, cut their hours, and cut off their health care coverage. Health care in America certainly had problems before this law, but Obamacare has been a cure worse than the disease.”
