Vote YES on HR 2, Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act
January 19, 2011
NTU urges all Representatives to vote “YES” on H.R. 2, Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, thereby cutting spending by $540 billion and preventing $770 billion in tax increases.
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 NOT real reform, but rather a political ploy to deceive taxpayers and to expand the federal government in a way that is both unprecedented and unsustainable. Our nation deserves better.
Last year, the 111th Congress chose to ignore the wishes of the American people and implement a package that has done little to lower costs or improve the quality of health care. Furthermore, reports surfaced last fall that claimed the law could raise premiums as much as 20 percent, while 2,000+ pages of hidden taxes and fees have made transparency nearly impossible. It is imperative that Congress start over and enact 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 then get to work on fiscally responsible alternatives that respect our economic freedoms. All related roll call votes will be heavily weighted in our annual Rating of Congress.
