Dent Votes to Repeal Obamacare

Charlie Dent part of House vote this week to repeal Obamacare

U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent, R-15th, released this statement about his vote Wednesday to repeal Obamacare:

“The 2010 health care law contains numerous detrimental policies that not only fail to appropriately address the complex problems of our health care system, but hurt our economy and hardworking American families.

"Repealing the law would allow Congress to enact meaningful reform measures that reduce cost, expand access and improve quality. Its repeal would also prevent the imposition of over 20 new or higher taxes that will cost Americans $675 billion over the next decade and stifle economic growth.

"While the political reality is repeal will not occur under this Administration, which still considers the deeply flawed law its signature legislative achievement, Congress must remain committed to repealing and replacing the most problematic provisions with substantial reforms.

"I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress in a bipartisan manner to advance common sense, sustainable reforms that benefit the American people.”

It amazes me how people think " TAX " is a bad word. That is how a civilized country works. How else would you have a strong military, keep Veterans' Hospitals open, fund the G.I. Bill, have new interstate highways, pay police and firemen, keep the Small Business Association, have FEMA for natural disasters and other programs ??? For those who want , " The Government out of our Lives ", of course, you people never used any of these government services. Right ?

Don't stop at Obamacare, get the government and their red tape and regulations out of health insurance all together and we will see real competition and dropping rates for insurance across the nation. Allow insurance companies to offer custom tailored insurance for businesses and independent groups and watch the rates drop and drop over a few years while they all scramble for your business.

This is supposed to be a free country.Our government was structured by our forefathers to defend our freedoms, NOT take care of us from cradle to grave by taking our money! If you clowns want socialized medicine and nanny government services, take it somewhere else, there's plenty of places that have the things you wish! Ya all keep talkin about Canada has this, France has this, etc. etc. then get yourself a passport and a plane ticket and go get it!

Maybe... but after stealing those ideas, they added 100 more stupid ideas that will just lead to bankruptcy of this system like all governement run systems.... filled with lazy public employees punching the clock till their bloated pension kicks in. How about those dumb ass democrats saying is will cost 800 Billion, then CBO says, nah, make that 1.6 Trillion.... and it will double again.
