Repeal of Obamacare Act

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 6079, a bill to fully repeal ObamaCare.

The Supreme Court rightly declared the individual mandate unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause but, unfortunately, allowed it to continue as a tax--a tax. But the Supreme Court does not have the final say. The American people do at the ballot box in November. And the House has our say today.

Taxpayers face tight budgets and a weak economy. With the largest tax increase in American history happening on January 1 of next year, while the President plays political games, the last thing our taxpayers need is another tax, especially one that inserts the Federal Government between patients and their doctors.

We must repeal this intrusive law and replace it with thoughtful legislation that protects all Americans' access to quality care from the doctor they choose at a price they can afford.

Mr. Speaker, I urge my colleagues today to join me in taking the next step to repeal ObamaCare.
