• Healthcare

    Obamacare has been a disaster. Government run healthcare goes against America’s founding principles and it is big government at its worst. Instead of improving healthcare, it increases premiums for families, raises taxes, kills jobs, adds to our debt and puts government bureaucrats between patients and their doctors.

    As a nurse for over 40 years, I understand the damage this law does to our healthcare system. I authored a bill that has become law that repeals part of Obamacare, saving taxpayers $13 billion. But, I won’t rest until the whole law is repealed.

    True healthcare reform means more choices, lower costs and most importantly, Washington staying out of your healthcare decisions.

    — Diane Black

    Complete Repeal: One of Diane’s first votes in the House was to fully repeal Obamacare. Additionally, Diane co-authored the Republican Path to Prosperity Fiscal year 2014, which would assume the complete elimination of Obamacare.
    Defund and Dismantle: Diane joined Tea Party members of Congress in sending a letter to Republican leadership in the House of Representatives demanding that NO appropriations bills with funding for Obamacare be brought to the House floor for a vote.

    Keeping the IRS out of Obamacare: The IRS is tasked with administering 47 tax provisions of Obamacare, but the agency’s recently uncovered political targeting of conservatives has shown that it cannot be trusted to enforce this law in an impartial way. That is why Diane cosponsored and voted for the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act, legislation to prohibit the IRS from implementing any part of Obamacare; effectively shutting down the law altogether.
    Leading by Example: Diane authored and successfully passed the first law repealing a health care provision of Obamacare, saving taxpayers $13 billion over the next ten years.
