Repeal Obamacare

Passed back in 2010, Obamacare made dramatic changes to the health insurance industry giving the government unprecedented control over health insurance companies, individuals, and businesses. The federal government now has the authority to force individuals to buy health insurance, force employers to provide health insurance to their employees, and regulates what kind of health insurance is legal.

While the stated intended goal of Obamacare is to make healthcare more affordable and more abundant, the outcome has been far different. Obamacare has caused millions to lose their plans and doctors, failed to lower the growing cost of healthcare, raised the cost for businesses to operate and grow their companies, and increased taxes and compliance cost on employers and families.
