ObamaCare Hurts Small Businesses, Must Be Ripped Out By Its Roots
Posted by Speaker Boehner’s Press Office
WASHINGTON, DC – At a press conference today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said the Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare has strengthened the resolve of Republicans, and the American people, to fully repeal a law that is raising costs and making it harder for small businesses to create jobs. Following is the text of Speaker Boehner’s remarks:
“There’s a lot of resolve amongst our colleagues, and amongst the American people, to stop a law that’s hurting our economy, driving up the cost of health care and making it more difficult for employers to hire new workers. The American people want this bill repealed. What they really want are common-sense steps that will empower them and their families to choose the doctor they want, at lower cost.”
With millions of Americans out of work and wages stagnant, Speaker John Boehner says the Supreme Court ruling has strengthened the resolve of the American people to fully repeal the president’s health care law (and its massive tax hike) which is driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire:
