Repeal Obamacare and do it now

By Heritage Action Sentinel Ramona Huffaker

My husband and I have a family member who owns a successful small business. The first year, the Obamacare premium was affordable, so they signed up. Every year since then, the price has gone up.

Finally all they could do was opt out and pay the penalty. They knew that if there was a major medical need, they would be in trouble. Well, it happened. There was an accident, an injury and astronomical medical bills.

They are on their own to pay their bills because they do not have insurance and yet they still have to pay the penalty! Where is the justice in that?

It is the government’s role to keep the peace, protect our borders and empower the people so that they can take care of themselves.

Obamacare took the power, to make our own decisions, away from “we the people.” It is a slap in the face for the middle-income family.

For the small business owners, who have already put their lives on the line to build a business and who keep our country employed, Obamacare is akin to strangulation!

Health care should be handled in the states between patients and their doctors, not by bureaucrats in the D.C. bubble. Republicans in Congress need to keep their promise, repeal Obamacare and do it now!
