MEADOWS: REPEAL OBAMACARE ON DAY 1
Shuler/Rogers Responsible for Historic Tax Increase
HENDERSONVILLE, NC – Small businessman and Republican candidate for Congress (NC-11) Mark Meadows released the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court decision to uphold President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Many of us hoped the Supreme Court would overturn the greatest attack on small businesses and seniors in recent memory. With the verdict in, it's clear the task is now left to “We the people.” We must work diligently to repeal Obamacare immediately.
The Supreme Court has confirmed: the Affordable Care Act is a tax – the largest tax increase in American history. We must hold accountable those who refused to repeal Obamacare for the enormous costs on seniors and small businesses. Hayden Rogers and Heath Shuler refuse to repeal Obamacare and even said there are some “good things” in the bill. I ask them today, “Were the ‘good things’ worth decimating small businesses and stripping away our religious freedoms? Were the ‘good things’ worth gutting Medicare and doubling premiums for seniors?”
I promise our seniors and the people of Western North Carolina that I will work tirelessly to repeal Obamacare immediately and replace it with patient-centered reforms that preserve your right to see the Doctor of your choice, protect small businesses, and lower costs.
According to the latest Congressional Budget Office cost projection, Obamacare’s price tag is $1.76 trillion over the next ten years, or roughly $12,753 for every American taxpayer (based on roughly 138 million American taxpayers with positive adjusted gross income).
Meadows is a fiscal and social conservative who has served on numerous boards and was recently appointed to the State Board for Economic Development in Western North Carolina, because of his expertise in business and job creation. He is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights, a Christian conservative, and a champion of “Life, Liberty, and Less Government.”
