ICYMI: Rubio: ObamaCare Must Be Stopped
Rubio: “ObamaCare hurts workers, hurts taxpayers and hurts job creators. It threatens the middle class aspirations of millions, including the many Hispanics who are trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. … [S]topping ObamaCare is as much a necessity for job creation as it is for the goal of promoting improved health care options for our people.”
No To Obamacare
By Senator Marco Rubio

We live in a special country. Most people throughout history have lived in societies where how far you go in life was limited by family connections and other circumstances of your birth. But America was founded as a land of freedom where men and women – from all over the world – could pursue their dreams and go as far as their talent and hard work will take them. Our founders believed that people would flourish in a free enterprise system that protects their freedom to make their own choices, and over two centuries of unprecedented innovation and economic growth have proven them right.
But our nation has recently taken a troubling turn. With the passage of ObamaCare in 2010, the federal government has claimed the right to force people to buy health insurance – or else the scandal-plagued Internal Revenue Service will come after them to collect new tax penalties. It’s exactly the kind of policy that people immigrate to America to get away from. Those who come to start new lives here – as my parents did when they immigrated from Cuba in 1956 – come in search of new freedoms and economic opportunities, not government directives and mandates.
ObamaCare hurts workers, hurts taxpayers and hurts job creators. It threatens the middle class aspirations of millions, including the many Hispanics who are trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.
Unfortunately, numerous special interest groups are spending millions of dollars in advertising campaigns, particularly in Spanish language media, to convince people that ObamaCare is good for them. What they fail to mention is that the law could devastate workers by forcing employers to choose between paying for all of ObamaCare’s costs and taxes, or hiring fewer workers or making their employees part-time.
