Need to Know - #33


Location: Unknown

The U.S. House of Representatives voted today to repeal the president's health care law, popularly referred to as "ObamaCare," on the heels of a 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing the law to stand. This vote represented the 33rd attempt by the Republican-led chamber to peel back all or a portion of this law.

In the past, the president himself has claimed that this law's individual mandate is not a tax. Yet, he's now rallying behind the Supreme Court ruling that defined this requirement as just that -- a tax. Look, I have little confidence that this far-reaching law would have ever advanced had the White House and Congressional Democrats united behind a tax mandate on every single American citizen.

Let's be clear: the Supreme Court ruled that this law is allowable, not that it is good policy nor that it will improve the delivery of care. This law is bad for patients and providers, it's bad for individuals and employers, and it's bad for states and jobs.
