Washington, D.C., Jan 19, 2011 -

Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) issued the following statement after voting to repeal the health care law signed into law last year by President Obama.  H.R. 2, the Repeal the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 245 to 189.

“Today, House Republicans took a major step in keeping our Pledge to America by voting to dismantle this job-destroying law.  ObamaCare is a budget buster – costing billions in higher and new taxes, while adding to the national debt.

“Just yesterday, President Obama spoke out against the anti-business, burdensome federal regulations that plague our government.  However, his healthcare bill would create over ten thousand pages of new regulations should it be fully implemented.  I challenge him to join the House of Representatives in listening to the American people and support the repeal and replacement of this law with common sense reforms that actually lower costs.

“Simply put, this law costs too much and adds to the economic uncertainty facing our nation’s job creators.  New taxes – to the tune of $570 billion – and a new employer mandate will only make things worse for small businesses.  Congress needs to be in the business of eliminating barriers to job creation, not adding to them.
