JONES VOTES TO OVERRIDE OBAMA VETO
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) voted to override President Obama’s veto of the Obamacare repeal the House passed last month and the Senate passed in December. The bill struck at the heart of Obamacare by repealing the employer mandates, the Medicaid expansion, the medical device tax, the annual fee on health insurers, tax subsidies for those who purchase insurance through the Obamacare exchanges, and included a cut in federal funding of Planned Parenthood for a year.
“The people and the Congress have spoken: Obamacare needs to be repealed. President Obama’s veto of the Obamacare repeal bill is the reason we need someone in the White House who will follow the will of the people and repeal this harmful law,” said Congressman Jones. “Obamacare has been a disaster from the start, which is why I have done everything I can to repeal or defund the law. I will continue to the fight to end this unconstitutional government takeover of our healthcare system and its disastrous effects on our economy, in addition to making sure Planned Parenthood does not receive hard-earned taxpayer dollars for the butchery of unborn babies.”
