Why Obamacare must be repealed

Obamacare was pushed through Congress without a majority of the American people's approval and certainly without bipartisan approval. The proof of the people's disapproval was in the 2010 midterm elections when the Republicans won in a landslide.

Polls still show that the majority of Americans remain opposed to the new law. We've had enough time to get acclimated to the idea of Obamacare since its passage, so why are a majority of Americans still opposed to it?

Perhaps one of the reasons is that the president and other Democrats in Congress have repeatedly deceived us about Obamacare. From Nancy Pelosi saying that they needed to pass the bill before we could find out what was in it, to the president flat-out saying that the individual mandate was not a tax, while it was clear to everyone, including the Supreme Court, that it was. Or maybe it's because the estimated costs of Obamacare and the tax hikes that will go along with it just keep increasing. The list goes on and on.

We need to elect men and women who will stand firm with the majority of the American people and repeal this law, men and women like our own Congressman, Peter Roskam, who is helping lead the charge for repeal. Hopefully, Congress will be able to start over in a bipartisan manner to fix the very real problems in our health care system. Obamacare is not that fix. It is bad for health care, it is bad for the economy, and ultimately, it is bad for you and me. Let's get back on track this November.
