Michigan State Representative Steven Johnson (R) recently introduced House Resolution 13, a state resolution calling on Congress to begin the process of repealing Obamacare.
HR 13 has been referred to the House Committee on Health Policy. By approving HR 13, Michigan would send an important message to Washington to repeal Obamacare, along with the 20 tax increases included within.
“I applaud Rep. Johnson for his leadership on this important issue,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “Big government local politicians like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio frequently tell Congress what they would like them to do. As such, it’s important for pro-taxpayer state legislators to also make their voice heard in Washington, which Michigan can do by passing Rep. Johnson’s resolution.”
Other states are expected to introduce similar resolutions in the coming weeks urging Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare. As Congress tends to this issue over the coming weeks, Americans for Tax Reform encourages all states to follow Michigan’s lead in sending this important message to Washington.
