Lamborn Statement On The Passage Of Healthcare Reform Bill

Statement

Location: Unknown

Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) issued this statement following the passage of both H.R. 3590, the Senate healthcare bill, and H.R. 4872, the Reconciliation Act. Lamborn voted against both these bills.

"The Democrats passed this massive and oppressive bill against the will of the American people. Never in the history of this great country have so few threatened the freedoms of so many. This bill will burden the job-creating sector with a staggering $500 billion dollars in new taxes over the next 10 years, sapping the private sector of needed capital. Americans will be forced to purchase government-approved health care insurance -- or face IRS fines and jail time. And generations yet to come will be stuck with a crushing debt. You cannot subsidize or give away health insurance to more than 30 million Americans and pretend that will reduce the deficit.

"This fight is not over. I vow to do all I can to repeal or defund this constitutionally suspect bill. We must and we will take back our country." -- Congressman Doug Lamborn
