Best Speech On ObamaCare Repeal? How About Steve King’s?

U.S. Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) was recognized for one minute during yesterday’s debate on repealing ObamaCare. One of the leaders of the repeal movement from the first moments of the monstrosity’s approval last spring, he dispelled many misplaced notions about the government takeover. In fact, a pro-ObamaCare lawmaker spoke just before him, spewing more misinformation about the law’s so-called benefits, and Rep. King immediately addressed that, too.

I spent 28 and a half years in business. I met payroll for over 1400 consecutive weeks. I never saw a regulation that made my job easier or allowed me to make more money.

This is 24-hundred pages of legislation; it’s thousands more pages of regulation. It’s oppressive to small business. It should be called the entrepreneurial extinction act, not this health care plan.

This is ObamaCare and must be pulled out completely by the roots. The American people know this. That’s why there are 87 freshman Republicans . . . and only nine freshman Democrats. … The American people have spoken resoundingly. It our obligation to go down this path. It is not symbolic. It’s very important because without this vote on this floor we cannot . . . eliminate ObamaCare. …

There. In one minute about a dozen ObamaCare lies refuted. Click here to see Rep. King on video. By the way, he’s trying to dispel another bit of conventional wisdom — that there are not enough votes in the Senate to repeal. He gives Josiah Ryan at The Hill’s Floor Action Blog the scoop.

Who Says There’s No Bipartisanship On ObamaCare?

The House of Representatives today voted to repeal ObamaCare by a vote of 245-189. Three Democrats voted with all 242 Republicans. The ironic aspect of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Regime’s call for bipartisanship during the push to  enact ObamaCare was that there was plenty of bipartisanship — all on the “no” side. While several Democrats voted with Republicans against ObamaCare last spring and nearly combined to defeat it, no Republicans voted for it. 

Although fewer Democrats than expected voted to repeal it (based on the 19 Democrats who withheld their vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker a couple of weeks ago), the fact remains that one of the lies of ObamaCare is that there is no bipartisanship on the issue.

In fact, there is plenty of bipartisanship on ObamaCare. It’s just that it’s in opposition to it!
