Edited by Jenny Jiang

Transcript of House floor remarks by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) on repealing the health care reform law (July 10, 2012):

“Tomorrow, the House Republicans will vote for the 37th time to repeal, defund, or dismantle the President’s governmental health care takeover bill.

“Not only will this legislation grow the size of government, limiting freedom, it will also levy 21 new or higher taxes on Americans and small businesses, causing the destruction of jobs.

“If Obamacare is not repealed, beginning on January 1, 2013, a 3.8% capital gains tax on investment income will go into effect, destroying jobs in the homebuilding and real estate industries.

“The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), America’s largest association of small businesses, has estimated that Obamacare will destroy 1.6 million jobs.

“In order for our nation to recover, Obamacare must be repealed and the government and Congress must pass legislation that encourages job creation through private sector job growth.”
