Mrs. BACHMANN. I thank the gentleman from Virginia for yielding.

ObamaCare, as we know, is the crown jewel of socialism. It is socialized medicine. The American people spoke soundly and clearly at the ballot box in November. And they said to us, Mr. Speaker, in no uncertain terms, repeal this bill. And so today this body will cast a vote to repeal ObamaCare.

And to those across the United States who think this may be a symbolic act, we have a message for them: this is not symbolic. This is why we were sent here, and we will not stop until we repeal a President and put a President in the position of the White House who will repeal this bill, until we repeal the current Senate, put in a Senate that will listen to the American people and repeal this bill.

Because what has been the result, Mr. Speaker? It's been this: it's been job loss, it's been increases on costs to the American people. I have seen everything from 26 percent increases on health insurance to 45 percent increases on health insurance. This will break the bank, and we won't let that happen to our country.

So make no mistake, Mr. Speaker. We are here to stay and our resolve is firm. We will continue this fight until ObamaCare is no longer the law of the land and until we can actually pass reform that will cut the costs of health care.
