Our health care and insurance systems need reform. In 2010, Congress enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as ObamaCare. The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that the penalty assessed to individuals who fail to purchase insurance is a tax. As a former small business owner in Davis County, I see and understand the stresses that this tax penalty is forcing upon business owners throughout our district. Not only are jobs being killed by the implementation of Obamacare but it is crushing economic activity. The purpose of the Affordable Care Act was to drive insurance premiums down. But instead we see the exact opposite - some premiums rising as much as 400 perecent. This makes ObamaCare the largest tax increase on the American people. As your Congressman, I will work to defund, repeal and replace Obamacare. To learn more about what I have specifically done to defund and repeal Obamacare, click here.
