BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. YOHO. Madam Speaker, I stand today to show my support for H.R. 45, the repeal of the largest legislative piece of malpractice ever passed through the Halls of Congress.

This one bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare, has done more to disrupt our economy and bring uncertainty to the marketplace than anything I have witnessed.

My colleagues on the other side talk about jobs and no job creation on this side. We are working to create jobs here by repealing this bill. This is the number one job-killing bill in America, and it has rocked the engine that drives our economy--the business owner and the entrepreneur that create the jobs. Without jobs being created, the hardworking Americans will lose their jobs and they are going to lose their health care.

Instead of health care reform, Congress created a health care tax. It is a tax that will be paid by all Americans young, old, rich, or poor.

Today, in response to the people who have had enough, the White House declared this: ``It's the law.'' My response on behalf of the people I represent is this: Not for long.
