BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to support freedom and prosperity.

ObamaCare--call it a tax or a mandate--is a threat to personal liberty. My constituents in Colorado want to work directly with their doctors with regard to their health care without going through a Federal bureaucrat.

ObamaCare burdens small businesses and families by imposing more than $800 billion in new taxes that will make it impossible for them to grow and thrive. The independent Congressional Budget Office estimates that employers will create 800,000 fewer jobs by 2021 as a result of ObamaCare. In fact, we are already seeing how this is hurting jobs today. The National Retail Federation found that 48 percent of businessowners cite the potential cost of health care as a reason they are not hiring additional workers.

We can fix what is wrong with health care through patient-centered reforms that are targeted and affordable, but first we must protect our freedoms and the economy by repealing ObamaCare.
