Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BERG. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in firm support of repealing this job-killing health care law.

This is a $500 billion tax that will hurt small businesses at a time when we need these job creators to help put our country back on track. America's small businesses cannot grow with the tax hikes and government mandates in this law. Medicare payroll taxes will increase. Costly penalties will be imposed on small businesses, and there will be increased health care costs.

Repealing this law and removing these barriers will provide businesses with the certainty they need to help get America back on track.

My wife is a family practice doctor, and when this law first passed, our first concern was this puts government between patients and their doctors. We need to repeal this law and put those health care decisions back between the patients directly and their doctors.

I urge my colleagues to support this legislation.
