Neugebauer Votes to Protect Americans from Obamacare

Sep 29, 2013 Issues: Health Care

WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) released the following statement after voting to protect Americans from the devastating consequences of Obamacare. 

“When Obamacare was pushed through Congress—with no Republican support—Americans were told that we had to pass the bill to see what was in it.  Now we know what’s in it: massive taxes, reduced hours for employees, higher costs for businesses, and higher premiums for patients.  I will do everything in my power to protect my constituents from those burdens,” Neugebauer said.

The House also voted on a permanent repeal of the new tax on medical devices.  “Taxing medical devices stifles innovation and hurts job growth,” Neugebauer said. 

Separately, the House passed a bill that ensures the military will be paid in the event of a government shutdown. 

“We’ve been clear that our priority is preventing Obamacare from harming patients, closing small businesses, and hurting our economy.  It’s time for the Senate to join us.”
