INHOFE JOINS EFFORT TO REPEAL OBAMACARE

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today joined with several other Republican Senators in introducing legislation to fully repeal the Democrats’ government health care takeover that President Obama signed into law Tuesday morning. The effort, led by U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), already has 11 other GOP members as co-sponsors.

 

“I stand with the majority of the American people in opposing the awful government takeover of our health care system,” Inhofe said.  “Repealing this legislation is the only way we can start over with meaningful reforms that will improve our health care system – not turn it into socialized medicine.  The tax increases, cuts in Medicare, and the provisions that allow taxpayer funds to be used for abortions are all unacceptable.  I appreciate Senator DeMint’s efforts on this, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in doing all we can to repeal Obama’s health care plan.”

 

TEXT of the bill: 

To repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled.

 

SECTION 1. REPEAL.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and the amendments made by that Act, are repealed.
