Outlines core flaws of Obamacare in speech on Senate floor

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter today joined 46 other senators in supporting an amendment that would have repealed Obamacare.

“Although the repeal amendment didn’t pass today, the fight is not over, and I will continue to push my own repeal legislation in the Senate,” said Vitter. “Obamacare is unconstitutional, raises taxes and premiums, cuts Medicare by half a trillion dollars and puts government bureaucrats between patients and their doctors. Instead of this big-government approach, we need the targeted, common-sense reforms I’ve laid out with others to dramatically reduce costs and make health services more accessible.”

Vitter spoke on the Senate floor this afternoon in support of repealing Obamacare. You can watch the video here:

Vitter recently reintroduced his legislation to fully repeal Obamacare. His bill actually goes further than the bill voted on today and repeals the entire bill including the government takeover of student loans.
