Congressman John Kline issued the following statement today on ObamaCare's two-year anniversary:
"Two years ago, President Obama sent the nation down a costly path of bureaucracy and broken promises. Job crushing mandates, higher costs for families, and more government control that threatens the health care of millions of individuals is the growing legacy of this flawed law. America's families shouldn't have to fear losing their health care, and employers cannot afford a government-run scheme that makes it even more difficult to create jobs.
"As I travel throughout my district in Minnesota, constituents share stories of the devastating affects the ObamaCare law is having on their families and businesses. Last Friday at a roundtable meeting in Dakota County, small business owner after small business owner told me how the ObamaCare law is creating uncertainty, forcing their costs to skyrocket, and preventing them from creating private-sector jobs. In an email survey to constituents earlier this week, an overwhelming majority of my constituents said they favored repealing the entire ObamaCare law.
"The message from my constituents could not be any clearer: They can't afford ObamaCare.
"One of our first acts of Congress last year was to completely repeal ObamaCare. Over the past 15 months, the House has taken 26 votes to repeal, defund, or dismantle ObamaCare, and it is time for Democrats in Washington to listen to the will of the American people by joining that effort. We will continue to do the work we were sent to Washington do until the threat of the health care law is removed once and for all."
