“Imagine going into a grocery or retail store and not buying a single product. After leaving the store you are immediately confronted by an IRS agent demanding you pay a tax for NOT buying anything! This is what Obamacare is all about. That is why I introduced a Constitutional Amendment forbidding the federal government from taxing you for failing to engage in commerce.” Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, March 2013.
“I remember a lady got up in front of Congress and proudly stated, “we need to pass it before we can see what’s in it! The last time I heard that was from my doctor when he asked for a stool sample and in both cases he got the same thing! That is why I introduced, “Read the Bills Act.” Why am I the only one who wants time to read the bills congress is asked to vote?” Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, April 2013
“Dr. Gruber, the architect of Obamacare, an MIT economist, can not remember how much he was paid under Federal and State contracts. What is more interesting is he never denied fooling the American people on it’s merits when I asked ‘how much was he paid to fool the American people?.’ Obamacare is a travesty that right minded people can not deny.” Rep. Bentivolio, September 2014.
“Promises, promises, promises! We gave them the House, we gave them the Senate and we gave them a Republican President and WE STILL HAVE OBUMMERCARE. Are you feeling betrayed yet? In Lansing, we voted no on the increase in the GAS TAX and our Republican State House, our Republican State Senate and our Republican Governor raised the gas tax anyway! I don’t know why they have a Republican platform!” Honorable Kerry Bentivolio, June 2017.
I wholeheartedly oppose Obamacare, and VOTED to repeal it.
The government takeover of nearly one-fifth of our economy has only led to an increase in the cost of both healthcare and health insurance.
The recent Supreme Court ruling that granted the Congress an unlimited power to use the tax code to compel us into buying a product from private companies is a massive intrusion on our freedom.
Washington should not be allowed to control every aspect of our lives. I ask all Americans to join me in standing up to this intrusion into our daily lives.
We can reclaim our right to be self-responsible citizens without the management of Washington bureaucrats, but we must take action in November.
One problem that too many Americans currently face, though, is that they are not empowered to participate fully in the market because their only realistic option for insurance depends on whatever their employer chooses for them.
This system has become even more burdensome as Michiganders have found themselves out of work. Health savings accounts—as exemplified by our neighbors in Indiana—have proven to be an effective reform that has brought free market principles into the purchase of health insurance.
