Cole Urges Obamacare Repeal

July 11, 2012
Speech

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Tom Cole (OK-04) made the following remarks on the House floor in support of H.R. 6079 - the Repeal of Obamacare Act:

Obamacare is unpopular, unworkable, unaffordable – unpopular because it limits individual freedom and personal choice; unworkable because it relies on thousands of regulations, dozens of boards and commissions, and an unelected group of bureaucrats to distribute and ration care.

We have the opportunity today to end a bill that's also unaffordable – hundreds of billions of dollars worth of taxes, hundreds of billions of dollars worth of raids on the Medicare fund. We can only take the first step here today.  In November ,the American people can take the next step by electing a president and a Senate that will work with this House instead of against them to repeal what is a legislative monstrosity that should have never passed in the first place.
