U.S. Army veteran and small business owner Brendan Mullen today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.
"As a small business owner, I am concerned about the implications of Obamacare's burdensome regulation on Hoosier small businesses and on its cost to taxpayers as getting our national debt under control is a top priority. As a veteran and as a father, I don't believe this law does enough to make health care costs more affordable for our families.
"Washington needs to hear the frustration of Hoosiers and both sides need to come together to fix this law. We can't afford Jackie Walorski's radical Tea Party approach just as we've got to improve health care to make it more affordable for middle class families and small businesses. We need bipartisan, common-sense solutions to improve this law and make it affordable and sustainable for future generations.
Of particular importance to Hoosiers is the repeal of the burdensome medical device tax, which costs us jobs right here in Indiana. I'll fight to remove that portion of the bill on day one.
"I hope today will get the ball rolling on fixing this law so that costs are cut for our families and for our small businesses."
