Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act

Floor Speech

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. FLEISCHMANN. Madam Speaker, tonight I rise in support of the repeal of ObamaCare.

This is my first speech on the floor as a Member of Congress, and I thought it only appropriate that it be on this topic--a topic I campaigned hard on and a topic I believe strongly in.

We must repeal this health care legislation. As a small business owner for the past 24 years, I know firsthand the kind of damage this legislation would do to American small business if it is allowed to be put in place.

The National Federation of Independent Research Foundation conducted a study that showed the employer mandate found in ObamaCare could lead to a loss of 1.6 million jobs throughout the country, and 66 percent of those lost jobs would come from the small business workforce. That same study showed ``small businesses would lose, roughly, $113 billion in real output and account for 56 percent of all real output lost.''

As a member of the Small Business Committee, I promise to use my personal experience to fight every day for small business owners everywhere. Starting tonight, we must repeal ObamaCare.
