CONGRESSMAN LEONARD LANCE ON OBAMACARE

As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Leonard Lance is on the frontlines in the fight against ObamaCare, voting 32 times to either fully repeal, defund, or dismantle portions of this onerous legislation.

REPEAL OF OBAMACARE: Leonard Lance has voted 32 times to either fully repeal, defund, or dismantle portions of ObamaCare.

FIRST N.J. MEMBER TO CALL FOR OBAMACARE REPEAL: Leonard Lance twice voted against the creation of ObamaCare and was one of the first members of Congress to call for its immediate repeal.

DEFUNDING OBAMACARE: Leonard Lance voted for a bill that defunds and repeals key components of ObamaCare -- more than $52 billion in cuts from the law. The Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill called these cuts the, "first real bite out of President Obama's health care law."

REPEAL CLASS ACT: Leonard Lance voted to repeal the financially troubled part of ObamaCare that was designed to provide affordable long-term care insurance known as the CLASS Act.

REPEAL IPAB: Leonard Lance voted to repeal ObamaCare's cost-control board, the Independent Payment Advisory Board or IPAB that would lead to the rationing of health care.

AGAINST OBAMA COVERAGE MANDATE: Leonard Lance is a cosponsor of the "Respect for Rights of Conscience Act" -- legislation that will reverse the recent decision by the Obama Administration to force thousands of religious schools, hospitals and charities in America to comply with a mandate that violates their religious views.

NO ABORTION COVERAGE UNDER OBAMACARE: Leonard Lance voted three times to ban taxpayer funds from being spent on abortion under ObamaCare.

REAL, FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE REFORMS: Leonard Lance supports repealing ObamaCare and replacing it with common-sense fiscally responsible reforms that include allowing insurance to be sold across state lines, improving health savings accounts (HSAs), establishing Association Health Plans (AHP) insurance pools and enacting real medical malpractice reform.
