Ayotte Backs Senate Effort to Repeal Health Care Takeover

U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) today voted for a key measure to move forward on a full repeal of the federal takeover of health care – which Senate Democrats blocked by a vote of 47 to 51. Separately, she also voted to eliminate an onerous business tax filing requirement (the “form 1099” mandate) from Obamacare that represents an enormous compliance challenge for small businesses in New Hampshire and nationwide.
