Americans for Prosperity: Fight for Healthcare Freedom Isn’t Over
Americans for Prosperity – Oklahoma reaffirmed its commitment to full repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in response to the Supreme Court’s decision this morning.
“Oklahomans recognize that this law is a threat to our liberty,” said Stuart Jolly, State Director of AFP-OK. “While the Supreme Court may be done with its work, taxpayers are still paying attention and now expect Congress to do the right thing. The individual mandate alone amounts to a $4 billion annual tax increase and that’s just one of 21 tax increases in the bill.”
Oklahoma already rejected the health care exchange, and according to a Sooner Poll, over two-thirds of likely Oklahoma voters believe the health care law will be “bad for the country,”
For years, Americans for Prosperity has vigorously opposed President Obama’s health care law. Since 2009, AFP’s Hands Off My Health Care project has rallied thousands of Americans at hundreds of events around the country, including a massive rally this past March with over 4,000 AFP activists.
“Americans want patient-centered health care reform that expands health care freedom, choice and innovation, not more restrictions, bureaucracy, and reckless spending,” Jolly continued. “Americans for Prosperity will continue to drive this message home in the months ahead with rallies and events telling Congress “Hands Off My Health Care.”
