Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, yesterday's decision by the Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare is discouraging for America's small businesses by destroying jobs and threatening families with the loss of their insurance policies.
When the President lobbied for the passage of the 2,700-page health care takeover, he promised Americans that the individual mandate was not a tax increase. Chief Justice Roberts based his opinion on his view that it is a tax increase, which contradicts the President as being incorrect.
Chief Justice Roberts and the four liberals now confirm the President has been inaccurate. Not only will this tax place more hardship on small businesses to follow the law, but already 12,000 pages of regulations have been issued with more than 150 new boards, agencies, and programs destroying jobs.
On July 11, the House of Representatives, under the leadership of John Boehner and Eric Cantor, will vote to repeal the Obama taxes. On November 6, American citizens will have the opportunity to vote for repeal and reform.
In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
