Obamacare Repeal Vote: Rokita Paves Way for Better Health Care Solutions


Date: May 16, 2013
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita (IN-4) today voted in favor of H.R. 45, a bill to fully repeal Obamacare. The bill passed the House with a bipartisan vote of 229-195.

"Obamacare is already resulting in higher health care costs for families, fewer jobs for American workers and massive new red tape for job creators -- and it hasn't even been fully implemented yet. Some of Obamacare's chief supporters have warned that it could be a "huge train wreck.' And in light of the recent scandal at the IRS, it's frightening to consider that the Obama administration wants to hire 2,000 more IRS agents to implement Obamacare.

"It's critically important that we fully repeal Obamacare so that we can pass step-by-step, innovative reforms such as the State Health Flexibility Act, which I reintroduced earlier this year," said Rokita.
