Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler calls for repeal of ObamaCare on first anniversary of health care law
One year ago today (March 23) the ObamaCare health care bill was signed into law. Since then, Americans have seen increases in health care costs, uncertainty that has crippled small business owners and an unemployment rate that has left many of our friends and neighbors jobless. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) is making it clear she remains committed to repealing ObamaCare and replacing it with better solutions.
"Citizens of the 4th Congressional District did not want a 2,801 page bill that increases uncertainty in the economy," Hartzler said. "And they are not happy when many Washington leaders are still supporting a bill that continues to destroy jobs, expand government's role in our lives, and increases the cost of our health care."
"I remain committed to repealing this onerous law that places burdens on all businesses - hitting small businesses particularly hard," added Hartzler. "I have met with numerous business leaders in our state and everyone agrees that due to the uncertainty of the health care law and the employer mandates, businesses are being forced to cut employee hours, restrict the number of full time employees, and drop worker health care coverage. Unemployed Missourians need jobs - not a government program that cripples our economy. This law will only serve to keep our unemployment rate at alarmingly high levels. It is time to repeal and replace ObamaCare with affordable health care coverage that Americans want."
In one of her first acts as a Member of Congress, Vicky Hartzler voted to repeal the job-destroying health care bill.
Vicky Hartzler was elected to Congress on November 2, 2010. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Agriculture Committee.
