Vote YES to Repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

February 1, 2011
By Andrew Moylan

     NTU urges all Senators to vote “YES” on the amendment introduced by Senator McConnell to repeal in its entirety the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, thereby cutting spending by $540 billion and preventing $770 billion in tax increases over the next decade.

     From its inception to final passage, NTU has vehemently opposed the health care law because of its enormous tax hikes, inclusion of an “individual mandate,” and mounds of restrictive regulations. This onerous law is a massive expansion of our federal government in a way that is both unprecedented and unsustainable. Our nation deserves better.

     A clear majority of the American people, 26 state attorneys general, and two judges have rejected this health care law as unwanted or unconstitutional. The time has come for Congress to heed that message and start over with reforms that put health care choices in the hands of patients and their doctors – not government bureaucrats.

     For the sake of America’s overburdened taxpayers, Congress must repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and get to work on fiscally responsible alternatives that respect our economic freedoms. Votes on the McConnell amendment, including cloture, will be among the most heavily weighted of the year in our annual Rating of Congress.
