Congressman Rick Crawford (R-Ark.) issued the following statement on the one year anniversary of ObamaCare being signed into law:
"One year ago today, President Obama signed into law the most massive job-killing entitlement program America has ever seen. Since then, the implications of ObamaCare have come to light and small business owners and Americans understand its damaging consequences.
I am proud to say one of the first votes I took in Congress was to repeal ObamaCare in its entirety. Since then I also voted to repeal the onerous 1099 tax requirement, which was tacked onto ObamaCare. While these are great strides in the right direction, more needs to be done. This legislation was forced down Americans' throats, and this Congress was sent to Washington to start truly representing the needs of our constituents. Throughout my term, I will continue to work diligently to repeal and replace the most burdensome requirements of ObamaCare."
Congressman Rick Crawford is the first Republican elected to represent Arkansas's First Congressional District since Reconstruction. He serves on the Agriculture and Transportation & Infrastructure Committees. Rick and his wife Stacy, both ASU alumni, reside in Jonesboro with their two children.
