Steve Russell on Health Care
Over the next two years the already rising costs for medical insurance will only get worse. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated that Obamacare will pull more than 2.5 million full-time jobs out of the labor force by 2024. With nearly 15 million Americans currently out of work, Obamacare will be devastating for our economy.
Obamacare must be repealed.
We must repeal it and replace it with a national policy that allows every individual the right to choose the plan that best meets their needs. Market competition will produce a larger variety of plans offered at more affordable rates.
Russell: Strongly Disagree
Question topic: The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) should be repealed by Congress.
