Health Care

f t # e
 
In Summer of 2012, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act in a ruling that establishes a dangerous precedent that the federal  government has unlimited ability to punish the behavior of its citizens by  levying taxes against them.

Like my Republican colleagues, I remain committed to a full repeal of  ObamaCare so that an honest health care reform conversation can begin -  with the American people, not Washington, leading the discussion. 

When ObamaCare came before the House of Representatives in 2010, I voted against it and recently cast my 40th vote to repeal, de-fund or dismantle the law. 

Democrats flagrantly ignored the will of the American people when they crammed through a partisan government takeover of health care. Their plan does not address the rising cost of health care, and will severely damage the accessibility, affordability and quality of health care in this nation. 

The health care debate in this country is far from over. I’m dedicated to fighting for patient-centered reforms while repealing the Democrats’ disastrous tax hikes, job-killing mandates and reckless cuts to Medicare that will be a fiscal disaster for our nation and harm our freedoms.

It is clear that Americans reject this legislation that gives Washington bureaucrats and politicians executive power over personal health care decisions while providing for taxpayer-funded elective abortion. If there's one thing this new law is designed to do, it's to grow the power of government. 

I will continue to listen to the people of North Carolina in this debate. Together, we must replace ObamaCare with better, workable, patient-centered solutions. A government takeover is not what Americans asked for and certainly not what we can afford.
