Rep. Turner Introduces Bill to Repeal Individual and Employer Mandates in ObamaCare
Rep. Mike Turner (OH-03)
Rep. Mike Turner introduced H.R. 6048, the Healthcare Tax Relief and Mandate Repeal Act. The bill repeals the taxes on individuals and employers mandated by the President’s healthcare law. Both the employer and individual mandates are to take effect in 2014 under the law.
Rep. Turner issued the following statement:
"This tax will have tremendous consequences on individuals, working families, businesses, and local governments. According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the individual mandate alone will result in $4 billion in increased taxes a year on Americans by 2017. While Ohio families are still struggling under this economy, the President aims to place additional tax burdens on them that they simply cannot meet."
