Health Care

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has announced that he will be introducing legislation to repeal socialized medicine, otherwise known as ObamaCare. 

The obvious lesson to be gleaned from the last election is that Americans are unhappy with the policies of the Democratic Party in general and President Barack Obama in particular, especially in regard to Obama’s monumental federal takeover of the healthcare system.

Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
