BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. HANABUSA. Mr. Speaker, I stood here 2 days ago addressing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and reviewing its benefits. I stand here today after the landmark Supreme Court decision to make people aware of the Republicans' efforts to repeal this historic piece of legislation.

The stakeholders must remember: seniors, the benefits with the prescription drugs already benefiting with $3.7 billion in savings; young adults who stay on their parents' plan until the age of 26, 6.6 million of you; small businesses who will experience tax credits of up to 50 percent by the year 2014; and women, women who suffered discrimination in premiums and on preexisting conditions like pregnancy. Imagine being defined a preexisting condition. 2014 they will stop.

These are just highlights, and this is why we need to, again, focus behind the Affordable Care Act and remember, it's the largest part of our GDP that keeps growing; and we need to have it under control in order to have our great economy.
