Keeping the Pledge: A Look at House Efforts to Repeal & Defund ObamaCarePosted by Press Office on January 31, 2012
Tomorrow the House will vote to repeal the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act, an unsustainable entitlement program whose phony “savings” were used by Democrats to mask the true cost of the president’s job-crushing health care bill before it was rushed into law.
Repealing the CLASS Act is only the latest in a series of legislative efforts designed to repeal and defund ObamaCare, a law that is making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers and provide insurance to their employees. Here’s a quick look at some of what the House Republican majority has done to repeal, defund, and take apart the unpopular health care law piece by piece, “step by step”:
Now the House will vote to repeal the CLASS Act, whose phantom “savings” were “crucial to garnering support for passage of the health care law,” according to a bicameral Congressional investigation. Policy analyst Grace Marie-Turner cites the Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget Committee who called CLASS “a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing Bernie Madoff would be proud of.” Even the administration admits CLASS is “totally unsustainable” – now that ObamaCare is law, of course.
