(Washington, D.C.) - A local congressman is joining the effort to have a federal health care law repealed.
U.S. Rep. Todd Young
Indiana 9th District Congressman Todd Young (R-Bloomington) is co-sponsoring the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act. Young’s office says the legislation would be replaced with a more patient-centered model.
The freshman congressman is also signing onto other smaller bills which seek to dismantle the health care bill piece-by-piece.
Introduced Wednesday in the U.S. House, the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act would eliminate an onerous expansion of tax reporting requirements for small businesses in the health care law. The provision requires businesses to report every transaction between businesses that total more than $600 a year.
“Congress should do everything in its power to lower the cost of doing business—especially during an economic recession—so that businesses are able to start putting Hoosiers back to work,” Young in a release. “I’ve heard from a lot of small business owners who are concerned about the resources that will be required to comply with these new reporting requirements, and I’m happy to fight for them by signing on to this bill. By freeing up those resources, we give them more freedom to begin hiring again.”
