House Republicans Roll Out New Health Talking Points

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.(Chet Susslin)

June 26, 2012

Two days ahead of the Supreme Court’s historic decision on the health care law, House Republicans are circulating new talking points for members who want to give critiques of the law beyond the individual mandate.

Staff for Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent the pamphlet--titled “It’s Not Just the Individual Mandate: Ten More Reasons To Support The Full Repeal Of The President’s Health Care Law”--to Republican conference members on Tuesday. The flier was passed out in hard copy to members last week.

The 10 reasons to push for full repeal:

 
  • The fine that some employers will have to pay for failing to provide health insurance
  • New taxes
  • The new Medicare board that can cut payment rates (the Independent Payment Advisory Board)
  • Tougher Medicaid rules for states
  • Cuts to Medicare reimbursement
  • Increased insurance premiums since the law was passed
  • The controversial requirement for all employers, including some with religious affiliations, to cover birth control free of cost to patients
  • The argument that health care reform leads to government control over the doctor-patient relationship
  • The Congressional Budget Office's projection that the law will cost $1.76 trillion over 10 years 
  • The creation of more than 150 new boards, agencies, and programs

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has vowed to hold a full repeal vote on the health reform law if the Supreme Court leaves any piece standing.
