Congressman Walter B Jones has co-sponsored several House bills to repeal ObamaCare.  He also joined other North Carolina Congressional Republicans in urging Attorney General Roy Cooper to join several other states in lawsuits against the over-reaching federal legislation.

In a press release, Jones said,

“America cannot afford this bill.  The Democrats have not listened to the American people and have now strapped future generations with the burden of paying off this tremendous piece of legislation, which will cost at least $1.2 trillion by 2020.  The bill includes an unconstitutional mandate that requires every citizen to have insurance, increases taxes on small businesses and does not have adequate protections to ensure that federal dollars will not be used to pay for abortions.  This is not the way to reform the health care system in this country.  The bill needs to be repealed as soon as possible.

Several other pieces of legislation have been introduced in the House to repeal parts of the bill.  Jones has co-sponsored five of those bills including one to block funding for the bill.

We applaud Congressman Jones for these actions.
