Washington, D.C. - Senator Ron Johnson made the following statement today after the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation to repeal Obamacare:
“I am pleased that the House of Representatives have honored their promise to the American people by taking a vote and passing the repeal of Obamacare. It is important that the Senate also holds a vote. We must put Senators on record as to who does and does not support the repeal of this law.
“I truly do believe that the passing of Obamacare is the single greatest assault on our freedom in my lifetime. It will destroy our health care system. It will lead to rationed care, lower the quality of care, increase medical costs and severely limit medical innovation.
“As troubling, this law will add trillions of dollars to our nation’s debt and deficit over the next couple of decades. We are already bankrupting our nation. We simply cannot afford Obamacare. It must be repealed.”
