Congressman Mike Rogers sent a letter today to Kathleen Sebelius,
Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, sharing the concerns of East Alabamians over Obamacare and urging repeal of the large and very flawed law before it is fully implemented.
The letter states, "In particular, there appears to be growing confusion about higher health insurance premiums, mass compliance confusion, and downright fear for the livelihood of individuals and their families. Additionally, small business owners in my district have told me that this law will prevent them from expanding and providing new jobs in my district. .. In a recent CNN poll, 54% of Americans said they opposed Obamacare. I do as well."
"Back in Alabama last week, I had the opportunity to hear back from my constituents on one of their top concerns: Obamacare. Folks are scared to death over all the regulations, the red tape, the costs and the real possibility of the detrimental effects it could have on small businesses and their jobs across East Alabama and the country. I voted against Obamacare and have voted to repeal it several times," Rogers said.
Sebelius testified today before the Education and Workforce full committee and caught a lot of heat from Members about how Obamacare is negatively affecting job growth.
Rogers serves as Chairman of the Strategic Forces subcommittee on the Armed Services Committee and is a senior member of the Homeland Security and Agriculture committees.
