McHenry Votes Against Obamacare

Bookmark and Share
Washington, Mar 21, 2010 -

Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement regarding his vote against President Obama’s so-called health care “reform” bill:

“Today’s vote means the President will sign federal funding of abortions, the Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase, 19 tax increases and $500 billion in Medicare cuts into law.  His so-called health care ‘reform’ plan raises premiums, ignores lawsuit abuse and adds billions to the federal deficit.

“This is an anti-jobs bill.  Instead of helping businesses create jobs it will increase federal spending, raise taxes and slow economic growth. 

“The fight goes on.  This summer more than 5,000 people stood up against Obamacare at the 11 town halls I held across Western North Carolina.  The battle against government-run health care is one of the most important I have ever fought and I am not about to give up now.  I will work with like-minded Americans across our nation to repeal or challenge this unconstitutional government takeover.”
