The IRS must be stopped
We were all outraged this week to learn that the IRS has been deliberately targeting conservative and faith-based groups. The IRS and the White House have abused their power and undermined the fabric of our free society. We must get to the bottom of what’s happening at the IRS and quickly.
And we must repeal Obamacare.
The IRS scandal is one more in a long list of reasons that Obamacare is bad policy for our country and our healthcare. Under Obamacare, the authority of the IRS is drastically increased. In fact, the IRS is the chief enforcer of Obamacare’s individual mandate tax and the law’s insurance subsidies.
Can you imagine giving the IRS more power when they are already abusing the power that they have?
We cannot allow the IRS to have any say over our health and wellbeing. The IRS must be stopped and Obamacare must be repealed.
Today I am joining with my colleagues in the House to vote for a full and complete repeal of this disastrous law. Despite the liberal Democrats’ highest hopes, the American people are seeing what’s in Obamacare and the president’s signature legislation is growing in unpopularity.
Every week we hear of another small business or franchise that is cutting back on hours in order to avoid the Obamacare penalties.
Families that were already struggling in the slow economy are now bearing the weight of unaffordable premiums and wondering how Obamacare was ever supposed to help them.
Obamacare will not help our families. It will not help our doctors and it will not improve access to affordable and quality healthcare. That was true in 2010 and it is true now.
I ran for office in 2010 because, as a nurse, I knew what Obamacare would mean for our country and I will continue to fight against the law any way that I can.
Today I’m voting to repeal Obamacare.
