Today Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) voted for H.R. 6079, the Repeal of Obamacare Act. The legislation passed by a vote of 244 to 185, and it would repeal the President's healthcare reform law.

Said Ros-Lehtinen: "Although the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare was constitutional, it is still horrible public policy. Obamacare was sold as a way to keep healthcare costs down. It didn't. The President promised that Americans could keep their current healthcare plans. They won't. Premiums are already going up and small-businesses are feeling the crunch.

I fully support this repeal and I hope my Senate colleagues give this bill the serious consideration it merits. The American people deserve better and as their elected representatives we must deliver."
