Inhofe cosponsors bills to repeal Obamacare

TulsaBuiness.com Staff

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) cosponsored seven new pieces of legislation to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“Since Obamacare was quickly pushed through Congress two years ago, health care premiums have risen, taxes have increased, and more people have become dependent on an inefficient government system,” Inhofe said. “It is no surprise that the Congressional Budget Office recently released new estimates showing the health care reform law is going to cost yet another $164 billion than previous estimates, and 3 million additional people will be forced into the government system as more employers will not be able to afford offering insurance to their employees. In the 113thCongress, I have already cosponsored several pieces of health care legislation, including a full repeal of the ObamaCare. I will continue to fight to see this law repealed and work towards common-sense health care solutions with my Senate colleagues.”

Inhofe is a cosponsor of the following legislation that has been introduced in the 113th congress:

  • The American Liberty Restoration Act (S. 40): would repeal the federal mandate for all individuals to purchase health insurance or pay a fine.
  • The Medical Care Access Protection Act (S. 44): would reform the medical liability process by limiting non-economic damages, set a statute of limitations of three years on claims, impose sanctions for frivolous lawsuits, prescribe qualifications for expert witnesses, and limit the awarding of punitive damages.
