In fact, news reports tell us the Administration is now looking for help from Hollywood celebrities to push a bill that many Americans clearly do not support. “That tactic has been used before. In the ‘50s and ‘60s, Hollywood was used in order to sell and glamorize tobacco products. Today, Hollywood is being asked to peddle the Affordable Care Act. Perhaps to make up for past sins… “The President’s recent decision to delay, for another year, the law’s mandate on employers and small businesses is more compelling evidence that the Obamacare approach to healthcare reform isn’t working, and is only going to make matters worse… “Nearly 75% of small businesses in this country have been forced to fire their employees, or cut their hours and turn full-time workers into part-time workers. In fact, just last month, 322,000 workers were forced into part-time employment… “I can understand the Obama Administration’s decision to delay the employer mandate that is crushing small businesses across the country. That’s why so many of us opposed the law to begin with. “But the American people deserve far better than a cherry-picking, tax-increasing approach to healthcare reform. American families shouldn’t have to juggle higher healthcare premiums with the threat of losing their job, or losing hours at work. They deserve common sense solutions that will reduce costs and increase access to high-quality care. Obamacare, clearly, is not that solution.” Follow Senator Heller on Facebook On Twitter @SenDeanHeller And on YouTube *If you are no longer interested in receiving updates, please do not respond to this email, as it is an unattended e-mail address.
