"Obamacare is perhaps the greatest threat to the middle class we've ever seen. We must repeal it and replace it with real, bipartisan health care reform that will work for all Americans." -- Bobby Schilling

Bobby Schilling has been leading the charge against Obamacare for years, and unfortunately we're starting to see the results of Obamacare's implementation firsthand:

Increased health insurance premiums for middle class families
Higher deductibles resulting in more medical costs out of pocket
Millions of Americans losing their coverage
Obamacare was supposed to insure the uninsured and guarantee coverage to everyone at no additional cost. But that isn't happening, and millions of Americans are now losing their coverage. Obamacare is proving to be ineffective, expensive, and bad for middle class families.

Bobby understands the importance of enacting bipartisan health care reform. Our current system is not perfect and we need to find solutions, but Obamacare is a giant step back when we need to move forward as a nation.

Bobby supports repealing Obamacare and replacing it with free market reforms that would cut medical costs and increase access for all Americans, while reducing the deficit by $540 billion and taxes by $770 billion over ten years.

Bobby doesn't think Obamacare can be fixed--it's time to go back to the drawing board. The crux of the law punishes the middle class while rewarding special interest health care corporations and insurance companies. We need to repeal Obamacare and pass real health care reform that serves the people and helps middle class families.
