“If there’s a constant in the story of ObamaCare, it’s broken promises,” Speaker Boehner says in a new video marking one year of the job-crushing health care law, and all its fewer jobs, higher costs, and reduced coverage. Listening to the American people, Republicans made a Pledge to America to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with common-sense reforms that lower costs and protect jobs – a pledge Speaker Boehner renews in this video:
Speaker Boehner on One Year of Job-Crushing ObamaCare
“If there’s a constant in the story of ObamaCare, it’s broken promises.
“Instead of creating jobs, employers have been handed more uncertainty and more headaches. Instead of lower costs, families and small businesses are being squeezed even further. Instead of keeping what they like, millions are being forced off their coverage.
“For all that, a more fundamental promise was broken when this government takeover of health care was pushed through. That day, that week, the people said one thing, and their government did another. Yet the people, unfazed by Washington’s payoffs and backroom deals, kept speaking out as the law proved unpopular, unaffordable, and unconstitutional.
“In January, the House passed a measure, consistent with the will of the people, repealing the job-crushing health care law. The House has also voted to defund the law altogether. In the coming weeks, you’ll see more votes and more hearings in the House to take this law apart, step by step. That includes repealing the law’s mandatory spending slush funds. In short, we will do whatever we can to ensure ObamaCare is never fully implemented.
“Together, we can repeal ObamaCare and replace it with common-sense reforms that lower costs and protect American jobs.”
Since January, the House has voted to fully repeal the $2.6 trillion health care law; to defund the law as part of H.R. 1; and to repeal the job-destroying 1099 small business mandate. Last week, Speaker Boehner announced the House will soon vote to eliminate mandatory spending slush funds in ObamaCare. Today, House Small Business Committee leaders pressed the Obama Administration for answers regarding the controversial ObamaCare waivers.
