Stutzman Votes to End Burdensome ObamaCare-1099 Debacle
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Stutzman (IN-03) voted to end the burdensome 1099 provision of ObamaCare. H.R. 4 the Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act of 2011 was Cosponsored by 273 Members including Congressman Stutzman. This repeal found strong bipartisan support and passed 314-112. The repeal will remove regulations on business and individuals that incur business expenses in excess of $600, saving time, energy and money that can be better used in this tough economy.
“The House today voted to end a government regulation and improve job creation by giving employers a sign of stability.” Stutzman said “The 1099 provision of the ObamaCare Bill is an example of â€˜pass the bill to find out what is in it.’ The purpose was never explained and could be the gateway to a Value Added Tax, which would continue to stifle economic growth. Business owners, farmers and sole proprietors in Northeast Indiana should not be forced into increased costs due to IRS bureaucracy. This is an additional stride in recalling the job killing ObamaCare Bill.”
