In 2010 Nancy Pelosi had the audacity to state, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it..” Since the passage of Obamacare we have learned that the 10 year cost estimate of the program has nearly doubled from 9 billion to 1.7 trillion and a recent study concludes that it will add $340 billion to the deficit. We have learned that the Obama Administration under the authority granted by Obamacare to the Health and Human Service Secretary will compel religious organizations and individuals to act against their conscience. The Democrats cleverly crafted this bill so the steep cuts to Medicare will kick in after the 2012 election. Obamacare has contributed to the slow recovery as it drives up the cost of adding employees for small businesses. Obamacare continues to maintain a high level of unpopularity with the American people who are able to see through the spin and reject this large step in the direction of European socialized medicine. As part of the new Congress and new Administration, I plan to vote for a full repeal of Obamacare and enact free-market based reforms in it’s place.
