Womack on ObamaCare: Bigger Deficits, Higher Taxes, Poorer Care and Pro-abortion Outcomes
For Immediate Release
Rogers Mayor and Republican Congressional Candidate Steve Womack released the following statement in response to the U.S. House’s passage of the healthcare reform bill:
“ObamaCare means bigger deficits, higher taxes and lower quality healthcare. It’s an example of what’s wrong with Washington.
Most of our country opposes ObamaCare. But Washington isn’t listening. Instead of standing up for the views of the majority of Americans, Obama and Congressional Democrats were committed to passing their liberal agenda, regardless of the people’s support or the costs to our country.
Luckily, key parts of Obamacare--especially the subsidies--don't go into effect until 2014. In Congress, I will work to repeal ObamaCare.
I also oppose the healthcare bill’s repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which limited the expenditure of public funds on abortion. I share the concerns of leading conservatives, like Phyllis Schlafly, who said it is naive to expect that a promise to issue an Executive Order that reasserts the intentions of the Hyde Amendment will be fulfilled by the most pro-abortion president to ever sit in the White House. President Obama's first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion. With passage of this bill, we must redouble our efforts for the pro-life cause.”
