Rep. Griffith speaks to repeal of health care – video

WASHINGTON – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) made the following remarks today on the House floor in support of the repeal of ObamaCare:

“I believe the minimum essential coverage provision penalty is unconstitutional. I took an oath to uphold the Constitution. This time last year as a Member of Virginia House of Delegates, defending that Constitution, I was proud to cast my vote for House Bill 10, which mandated no Virginian shall be required to buy health insurance. Our Attorney General has joined the fray and filed suit in court and is winning. As Virginians, we did not accept the chains of George III, nor will we accept the chains of ObamaCare.”

Following the vote in Congress: Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement today after voting in favor of H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act. The bill passed the House 245-189.

“Your personal health care decisions should be made by you and your doctor, and no one else. Our health care system needs reform, but ObamaCare is not the answer. ObamaCare will ultimately destroy valuable jobs. We can do better than a government takeover.

“I took an oath to uphold the Constitution. When it comes to health care, we need choices–not unconstitutional mandates. We need commonsense policies that create jobs and improve access to care without busting the budget. Repealing ObamaCare will end the 1099 mandate and give businesses the certainty they need to grow.

Congressman Griffith is an original co-sponsor of this legislation. Now that the bill has cleared the House, it will be sent to the Senate for further consideration.

As I understand it, the “Job Killing” aspect of the “Job-Killing Health Care Law Act”* has been completely and thoroughly debunked. Check out this link.

So is Morgan simply playing the party line or is he really, actually independently thinking? I vote the former. I wish the latter.

* What the heck kind of bill name is that? Talk about sour grapes…

Now there is a “debunking” we can take to the bank…by NPR or all sources. The official governmental liberal arm of the liberal media. You might consider watching some of the business networks Newt. Last week there were several small business owners who expresses serious issues about the bill and the reporting which goes along with it, beginning with the need to report healthcare costs on 1099’s….and that was just a minor point.

Do a littl more research with unbiased sources and come back in a week!
