The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare is awful news for the vast majority of Suffolk County residents – specifically given our already struggling economy and the excessive burden already shoulder by the taxpayers who live here.
Despite repeated promises from President Obama and Congressman Tim Bishop to the contrary, the so-called “Affordable Care Act” they forced down our throats via backroom deals in Washington, DC has made healthcare LESS affordable for Suffolk County’s working families, seniors and small businesses.
What good is healthcare reform if it doesn’t lower the cost of healthcare?
As I campaign around the district, I repeatedly point to Congressman Bishop’s record of supporting higher taxes, more spending and irresponsible debt during his nearly 10 years in Washington, and explain how those policies have driven more than 30,000 jobs from Long Island.
One of the most unfortunate consequences of this job exodus is that many of our young people are following the jobs to other parts of the country. We are literally losing our future due to horrendous policy-making in Washington by Congressman Bishop and the rest of the politicians.
Unfortunately, the more than $500 billion in tax increases and $500 billion diverted from Medicare that we will be asked to endure will only exacerbate this problem, further cripple our economy and slow job creation. Tim Bishop said Obamacare would be a panacea to our problems, when the reality is that it will only make our problems worse.
Are you as a fed up with business as usual in Washington, DC as I am? Then let’s work together to do something about it.
If we want to change Congress, we need to start by changing the people in Congress – and that includes Congressman Bishop.
With your support, I will fight to repeal Obamacare and replace it with common sense reforms that are outlined in my 10-point jobs plan for Long Island, like lowering the cost of care by enabling insurance companies to compete across state lines and allowing small businesses to pool together to purchase healthcare for their employees; enacting comprehensive tort reform; putting medical decisions back in the hands of doctors and patients, not bureaucrats; and ensuring that we still protect those with pre-existing conditions.
