Bono Mack Votes to Repeal $1.8 Trillion Obamacare; Calls for Bipartisan, Market-Driven Healthcare Solution

Statement

Today, on a vote of 244-185, the House repealed the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Five Democrats joined in voting for the repeal. Afterward, Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (CA-45) issued the following statement:

"Poll after poll shows the same result: A majority of Americans want President Obama's healthcare law repealed. Period. Obamacare is too costly, imposes one of the largest tax increases in history -- primarily on the middle class -- and is morally wrong, because it will eventually lead to a government takeover of our healthcare system. That's not what Americans want.

"We need a simpler, smarter healthcare plan which makes certain patients are not denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions; children can remain on their parents' insurance policy until they are 26 years old; and seniors can continue to get the help they need paying for expensive prescription drugs. We can do all of these things without resorting to government-dictated healthcare that will cost $1.8 trillion and put 800,000 Americans out of work."
