Long Takes Action to Provide Americans Relief from Health Care Law’s Individual Mandate Tax

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Billy Long voted in support of the Suspending the Individual Mandate Penalty Law Equals (SIMPLE) Fairness Act.

“The Simple Fairness Act is needed to provide relief to individuals and families being burdened by the president’s health care law. The administration continues to break many of the promises it made to Americans in an effort to get the health care law passed. Time will tell who will be hurt next because of another broken promise. An individual mandate without an employer mandate would be unfair to the American people. I still believe the best course of action for our country is to repeal the president’s health care law and replace it with a plan that gives the American people more control of their health decisions, not bureaucrats in Washington,” Long said.

The Simple Fairness Act, H.R. 4118, is about providing fairness for all. The Obama administration has delayed the employer mandate for big businesses. This legislation provides families and individuals with relief from the president’s health care law by eliminating the individual mandate tax penalty for the remainder of the year.

Long supports the American Health Care Reform Act. The legislation not only fully repeals the president’s health care law, but also provides a common sense alternative to health care reform in our country by promoting patient-centered health care. The legislation would allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines, allow small businesses to pool together to purchase insurance at cheaper rates for their employees, and expand access to Health Savings Accounts among its many reforms.
