Reps. Burgess and Tiberi Introduce Bill to Repeal Obamacare’s Individual Mandate
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, and Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), chairman of the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, introduced legislation that would repeal Obamacare’s individual health insurance mandate.
“Obamacare’s individual mandate fundamentally alters the relationship between the government and the governed, severely limiting individual freedom,” said Congressman Burgess. “Since its conception, the individual mandate has been a direct attack on our personal liberty. This bill will provide the American people immediate relief from this overstep.”
“We need to put patients and families, not the federal government, in charge of their own health care,” said Congressman Tiberi. “However, the individual mandate is forcing Americans to purchase plans they don’t want, don’t need, and can’t afford to use. This legislation would provide relief to Americans who are trapped in overpriced and unreliable Obamacare plans and eliminate the threat of an unfair fine from the IRS.”
