Massachusetts Families Suffering Under John Tierney

ObamaCare – with its mandates, regulations, and taxes – is here to stay. Unless, John Tierney is replaced.

Massachusetts families and businesses – suffering under ObamaCare’s regulations, Medicare cuts, rising costs – and TAXES, have no choice but to fire John Tierney if they ever want to see this law repealed.

NRCC COMMENT: “John Tierney is taking a victory lap, while Bay State families and small businesses continue to suffer. It is not surprising that a "victory" for Democrats and President Obama is the biggest tax increase in history on all Americans. In order to regain control of their healthcare, Massachusetts families must replace John Tierney.”– NRCC Spokesman Nat Sillin

HE SAID IT:

TIERNEY CALLS RULING A “VICTORY”

REMEMBER:

TIERNEY VOTED FOR OBAMACARE

TIERNEY VOTED AGAINST REPEAL

FACTS:

DEMS CUT $500 BILLION FROM MEDICARE TO PAY FOR OBAMACARE: “It would cut an additional $60 billion from Medicare, bringing total cuts to the program to more than $500 billion over the next 10 years.” (Shailagh Murray and Lori Montgomery, “With Senate ‘Fixes’ Bill, GOP Sees Last Chance to Change Health-Care Reform,” The Washington Post, 3/24/2012)

OBAMACARE INCREASES TAXES BY $525 BILLION: (“CBO’s Analysis of the Major Health Care Legislation Enacted in March 2010,” Congressional Budget Office, 3/30/2011)

CARDIAC DEFIBRILLATORS, ARTIFICIAL JOINTS, AND MRI SCANNERS ALL FACE NEW TAXES: “The 2.3% levy applies to the sale of everything from cardiac defibrillators to artificial joints to MRI scanners. The device tax is supposed to raise $28.5 billion from 2013 to 2022, and it is especially harmful because it applies to gross sales, not profits.” (Editorial, “Improvised Explosive Device Tax,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/28/2012)

SMALL AND MID-SIZED BUSINESSES COULD BE HIT HARDEST: “Companies at make-or-break margins could be taxed out of existence, especially in an intensely competitive industry where four of five businesses are start-ups or midsized.” (Editorial, “Improvised Explosive Device Tax,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/28/2012)
