Rep. David Rivera: Time to Fully Repeal the Job-Killing, Tax-Hiking Health Care Law



For Immediate Release

June 28, 2012

Congressman Rivera: Time to Fully Repeal the Job-Killing, Tax-Hiking Health Care Law

Washington, DC- Congressman David Rivera (FL-25) released the following statement regarding the ruling by the United States Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act.

“The Supreme Court’s decision today underscores a track record of broken promises by President Obama. When the President was campaigning for office four years ago he promised not to raise taxes on America’s working families. A year later he insisted that the individual mandate in his job-killing health care law was not a tax. Today’s ruling proves otherwise.

“The job-killing health care law places a heavy burden on job creators and American families. The law imposes new taxes on the American people, wildly grows federal spending and impedes hiring— things we can ill-afford as our national debt nears $16 trillion and the unemployment rate has been at eight percent or more for 40 consecutive months. This irresponsible bill imposes onerous costs and regulations on small businesses, guts benefits for seniors and the disabled and leaves future generations holding the bag.

“It is in the best interest of our nation’s economy to repeal the job-killing health care law and replace it with common sense reforms that address what is wrong with the health insurance system in America. We must pass legislation that lower costs and protect American jobs, not threaten them. We must move toward a system that welcomes patient choice and flexibility, instead of more government involvement, by ensuring Americans the ability to make medical decisions without bureaucratic interference.

“It is time to fully repeal the job-killing, tax-hiking health care law and to implement lasting health care reform that gets Washington out of the way and gives Americans control over their medical decisions.”
