After receiving a letter from Governor Mitch Daniels requesting input on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (http://www.in.gov/gov/files/CandidateLetter.pdf), Republican candidate Mike Pence will be preparing a written response in the coming days. Today Pence issued the following statement in response to the request:
"ObamaCare will stifle Indiana's economic recovery and it must be repealed. The medical device tax has already cost Hoosier jobs, and if ObamaCare is not repealed in full, Hoosiers will face higher health care costs and increased taxes.
Any action Indiana takes must include careful consideration of the long-term costs to both Hoosier taxpayers and the state. I appreciate Governor Daniels seeking my input, and I will provide a thoughtful, written response in a timely manner."
