Tarkanian Calls for Congressional Repeal of Obamacare
Posting Date: 06/29/2012
In announcing its decision today, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare met the basic constitutional threshold; however, in doing so, the Court held that the only way the individual mandate portion could survive is to call it exactly what it is – a new tax on the American people.
This judicial ruling does not in any way change the fact that this misguided policy is bad for our country. As a majority of hard-working Americans agree, the time has come to completely dismantle Obamacare and the new tax it will levy upon middle-class Americans with the understanding that we should instead move forward with common sense solutions to America’s healthcare system.
Steven Horsford, Danny Tarkanian’s general election opponent, has stood firmly with the President and Washington liberals as they rammed through this new 2,700-page tax increase Nevadans will be forced to pay – further evidence that Horsford’s priority is to provide political support to President Obama rather than find real solutions that will help more Americans receive affordable healthcare without increasing taxes on individuals and small businesses and stymieing their ability to prosper and create more jobs..
During the two years that Obamacare has been in existence, it has already helped inflate the national debt, destroy jobs, cripple our economy and jeopardize the
economic future of our children and grandchildren – and over the next two years small businesses will suffer the full brunt of the law with new burdensome regulations and increased taxes set to go into effect. The time has come to start over by repealing the entirety of this law and enacting common sense solutions that will take healthcare decisions out of the hands of liberal politicians like Steven Horsford and put them back in the hands of the individual.
United States Congress candidate Danny Tarkanian (NV-4) responded to the ruling, “I have consistently stood against Obamacare and remain committed to its full repeal. Rather, we need to press forward with legislation that will extend the same tax incentives that businesses receive for providing health insurance to individuals who purchase their own plans. We need to get serious about tort reform and stabilize Medicare reimbursement rates. We need to make insurance portable and purchasable across state lines.
“When they should be focusing on promoting economic growth and creating jobs, Democrats insist instead on ramming through job-killing policies that increase taxes on Americans, like Obamacare. The American people deserve solutions for the economy and healthcare worthy of the 21st century not the same failed, one-size-fits-all, top-down approaches that Democrats like Steven Horsford adhere to,” Tarkanian concluded.

Posted Date: 06/29/2012 Tea Party Tarkanian – here’s a little truth for you! A simple fact about the U.S. Constitution that you and your followers claim to revere, but now seem to detest, is that when a law is passed by the duly elected congress and signed into law by the duly elected President, and then challenged on an extremely partisan basis in dozens of courts – and then the vast majority of those courts rule it to be constitutional, and the partisan folks appeal it to the U.S. Supreme Court, and THAT highest court in the land rules that it IS CONSTITUTIONAL – then by definition IT IS CONSTITUTIONAL – no matter how many time YOU call it unconstitutional. Why don’t you folks try proposing things that are GOOD for the average citizen instead of fighting to enrich corporations to the detriment of real people? And tell YOUR elected puppets to quit wasting time on political theatre like to waste of voting to repeal the ACA in the House – EVERYONE knows it won’t go anywhere, so work on a jobs plan and passing a highway bill – real things that would help real people in the Country instead of partisan-hack theatrics. Horsford has my vote. By: just sayin2

Posted Date: 06/29/2012 The same retoric regarding repeal occurred after the Occupational Safety & Health Act (OSHA) was passed in 1970. OSHA is still here & preventin worker injuries & health problems related to the working environment. By: George
