Stutzman on House Floor: “ObamaCare Is Based on Limitless Government, Bureaucratic Arrogance and a Disregard for the Will of the People”
House to vote on legislation to delay ObamaCare, repeal Medical Device Tax, and fund government.



Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman spoke on the House floor tonight in support of legislation that would fund government, delay ObamaCare for one year, and repeal the medical device tax.

Congressman Stutzman’s remarks, as prepared for delivery, are below:

“Mr. Speaker, almost three and a half years ago many stood in this chamber, claiming to have made history by overhauling our nation’s health care laws and subjecting one-sixth of our economy to federal control.

“The American people disagree. They understand that ObamaCare broke with history and that’s exactly why we’re here today.

“When government mandates that every American buy insurance established by bureaucrats and threatens to severely tax them if they don’t, that is an unconstitutional mandate.

“This country was founded on the principles of limited government, personal responsibility and consent of the governed.

“But Obamacare is based on limitless government, bureaucratic arrogance, and a disregard for the will of the people.

“That is why three and a half years ago Washington broke with history. Washington ignored our country’s founding principles. Back home Hoosiers still know what this town forgot.

“They know that their freedom diminishes when government raises taxes, empowers bureaucrats, and issues oppressive mandates. That’s exactly why ObamaCare was unpopular three years ago and is unpopular three days ahead of its implementation.

“The People’s House refuses to ignore the will of the American people.

“Today, Senate Democrats who refuse to acknowledge ObamaCare’s mounting failures have left Washington, D.C. for the weekend but families back home don’t have the luxury of ignoring this train wreck.

“With just three days until millions of Americans are forced onto ObamaCare’s exchanges, my colleagues and I will vote to stop ObamaCare. We will vote to protect religious freedom with strong conscience protections. We will vote to restore individual choice and freedom. We will vote to return to this nation’s founding principles.”
