Repeal ObamaCare
Kerry Bentivolio on ObamaCare:

I pledge to do everything in my power to repeal ObamaCare


Like a majority of Americans, I wholeheartedly oppose ObamaCare. The government takeover of nearly one-fifth of our economy has only led to an increase in the cost of both healthcare and health insurance. The recent Supreme Court ruling that granted the Congress an unlimited power to use the tax code to compel us into buying a product from private companies is a massive intrusion on our freedom.


Washington should not be allowed to control every aspect of our lives. I ask all Americans to join me in standing up to this intrusion. We can reclaim our right to be self-responsible citizens without the management of Washington bureaucrats, but we must take action in November. My first act as a Congressman will be to propose to the House of Representatives the following amendment to the Constitution:


The Congress shall not have the power to lay and collect taxes in order to compel any person or persons to engage in commerce, nor shall Congress have the power to lay and collect taxes from any person or persons for a failure to engage in any form of commercial activity.
