Feb. 3, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the House of Representatives for taking up legislation that will wholly repeal the health care law, including the individual mandate to purchase insurance:
“Today the House of Representatives will affirm that the Affordable Care Act is neither affordable, nor does is provide the kind of health care Americans want. In the weeks ahead, low income Americans who chose not to bow to the federal government’s demand that they buy health care will receive a punitive tax bill known as the individual mandate.
“Now is the time for our nation to have a substantive discussion about how to rebuild our nation’s health care system around a market based approach. Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, who is renowned as a health care expert, has put forward one comprehensive proposal that could well serve as a launch point for this conversation over the months ahead.
“In the meantime, Americans for Limited Government strongly commends the House and Speaker Boehner for making it clear that federal government run health care is not the answer, in fact, it is the problem.”
