Constituent Mailbag: Helping Small Businesses by Voting to Repeal, Defund, and Dismantle ObamaCare
June 07, 2012
Today, Congressman John Boehner responded to phone calls and emails from Eighth District constituents regarding House efforts to repeal the president’s unpopular and harmful 2010 health care law, which is driving up health care costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire workers. In the video, Boehner speaks directly to Michael from Eaton, who voiced his opinion by email, saying he wanted to see the “full and total repeal of ObamaCare.”
As Boehner notes in the video, “repealing ObamaCare was one of the first votes taken by this Congress. Since then, we’ve voted 29 times to repeal, defund, and dismantle the law.” In a recent weekly column, Congressman Boehner reiterated his commitment to taking action on ObamaCare, saying, “the president's health care law is raising costs and hurting small businesses, and it must be fully repealed.”
Today, the House will take its 30th vote in this effort by voting to repeal ObamaCare’s Medical Device Tax. This job-crushing tax threatens thousands of jobs across the state of Ohio, including some jobs in the Eighth District and surrounding areas. As the Dayton Business Journalpoints out, “The Dayton region is home to many medical device manufacturers, including AtriCure Inc. in West Chester, X-Spine Systems Inc. in Centerville and Mauch Inc. in Dayton, among others” that may be impacted.
Let us know what you think about ObamaCare in the comments below, and please take a minute to watch Boehner’s message here:
“Every week I hear from Eighth District constituents who oppose the president’s health care law, which is making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers.
“Michael from Eaton wrote that he wants to see “full and total repeal of Obamacare.”
“Now, repealing ObamaCare was one of the first votes taken by this Congress. Since then, we’ve voted 29 times to repeal, defund, and dismantle the law. And while the Democratic-controlled Senate continues to block these and other jobs bills, we are going to continue to take action.
“This week the House will vote to repeal ObamaCare’s medical device tax.
“In Ohio alone, this new tax threatens the jobs of more than 35,000 people. With many medical device manufacturers headquartered in our area, it will surely affect families in our community and our region’s economy.
“While we continue to fight for full repeal of ObamaCare, repealing this tax will protect jobs here in Ohio and across the country.
“Michael, you are not alone in being against ObamaCare and I appreciate you adding your voice to the fight.
“Please visit johnboehner.house.gov and let me know what you think of the president’s health care law. I look forward to hearing from you.”

Keep trying to repeal Obamacare and hold Atty. General in contempt!!! Behind you 100%
Here's an idea...why not work to actually get something done with the economy or jobs or education instead of beating a dead horse?
