Republicans Call for Repeal of Flawed Health Care Law

  • Today's ruling does not change the fact that ObamaCare's mandates, taxes, and higher costs are bad for America and need to be repealed.
  • ObamaCare is making our economy worse by driving up costs and killing jobs.
  • We need to repeal ObamaCare and enact commonsense, step-by-step reforms that protect Americans' access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost. 

The president's massive health care law is making things worse:

  • Despite Obama's promise that his health care plan would reduce insurance premiums, premiums have increased by over $2,200 since Obama took office.
  • ObamaCare will increase health care costs by $311 billion through 2019. 
  • Nearly half of small businesses that are not hiring cite the potential cost of health care regulations as a factor.   
  • According to CBO, ObamaCare will mean 800,000 fewer jobs over the next decade.

Supreme Court confirms ObamaCare mandate is a tax on the middle class:

  • In 2009, President Obama insisted the individual mandate was "absolutely not a tax increase." 
  • The Court confirmed today that the mandate is a national health care tax.
  • CBO projects that at least 75 percent of Obama's mandate tax will fall on families earning less than $250,000 per year. 

The only way to fix these problems is to repeal ObamaCare:

  • Republicans won't repeat the Democrats' mistakes.
  • We won't rush to pass a massive bill the American people don't support.
  • We need to do this the right way: no backroom deals or 2,700-page bills no one has read.

Republicans will work to repeal ObamaCare and enact commonsense, step-by-step reforms that protect Americans' access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost.
