Congresswoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement from her office in Washington this afternoon:
"Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of President Obama's assault on our nation's health care system - a mandated takeover of 1/6th of our nation's economy. The president's overhaul did nothing to make our citizens healthier and protect them from harm. Rather, Obamacare is and remains a redistribution of control. Its primary objective is to take healthcare decisions away from physicians and hospitals and place them in the hands of bureaucrats within the federal government."
"I ran for office in order to defund, dismantle, repeal, and replace Obamacare. By repealing the Independent Patient Advisory Board (IPAB) yesterday, we have dealt another blow to the president's takeover of our healthcare system. But this is only one battle in the fight to reclaim our freedoms. I will not rest until the entire law is repealed and today we are one step closer to fulfilling this promise."
