Trey: Repeal It!

Trey Grayson reiterated his opposition to the health care monstrosity and has signed a petition to repeal it.

According to Grayson,

“I support health care reform that does not cost taxpayers more than $2 trillion and that will not add to the deficit. The Democrat leadership and President Obama have used budget gimmicks to hide the true cost of this bill, and they’ve used procedural short cuts, strong arm tactics and have cut backroom deals to win narrow passage of legislation that will affect one-sixth of our economy and every American family and small business. The only thing bipartisan about this bill has been the staunch opposition to it,” said Grayson.

The bill will:

- Increase taxes on small businesses and families

- Cut Medicare by more than $520 billion

- Increase unfunded mandates on states by expanding Medicaid eligibility without paying for it

- Penalize married couples with higher premiums

- Tax/fine those who do not purchase insurance acceptable to the government

- Expand the role of the IRS into enforcing health care mandates

- Increase the cost of health insurance

- Increase spending on health care."
