Turner Reintroduces Legislation to Eliminate Obamacare Tax on First Responder Equipment
Congressman Mike Turner reintroduced his legislation which would repeal the Obamacare excise tax on first responder equipment.

Working to Halt Obamacare’s Ill Effects on Our Community
Since the bill’s enactment we’ve learned a lot. We’ve found out that the flawed legislation will adversely affect every American family, millions of seniors and small businesses throughout our communities. Its $500 billion cuts to Medicare, which include $156 billion in Medicare Advantage cuts, will hurt southwestern Ohioans already at risk.

Turner Supports Passage of the Form 1099 Provision Repeal
Today the House took an important step towards eliminating just one of the onerous costs ObamaCare has placed on our nation’s job creators.

A Chance to Get Healthcare Reform Right
By repealing Obamacare, we have taken the first step towards fixing the potholes littered throughout this massive law. Now comes the hard part – drafting bipartisan legislation which will reform healthcare for Ohioans and all Americans.

Turner Votes to Repeal Obamacare
“The flawed Obamacare legislation would adversely affect every American family, small business, and millions of seniors. Its $500 billion cuts to Medicare, which include $156 billion in Medicare Advantage cuts, will hurt southwestern Ohioans already at risk.

Health Care Bill’s Medical Device Excise Tax Stymies Economic Development and Innovation
In March, I voted against the government takeover of health care in part because it imposed over 500 billion dollars of additional taxes, fees, and costs on an already struggling economy. That half a trillion dollars is money that the federal government is going to take out of the economy from employers looking to create jobs and put people back to work.

White House Summit Fails to Yield Productive Results
Obtaining quality medical care is a top priority for Ohioans and their families. But, the federal takeover of our health care system will not lower health care costs for working families; it will result in dramatic federal spending, by some estimates costing over $1 trillion dollars.

Final Health Care Negotiations Should be Open to the Public
Although I oppose the government takeover of our nation’s health care system and voted against H.R. 3962, I believe the public should be allowed to witness these final discussions. Instead, the Democrats have opted for “closed-door” meetings.

Mike Turner’s Reaction to House Passage of Speaker Pelosi’s Government Takeover Health Care Bill
"It is unfortunate the Majority in Congress, led by Speaker Pelosi, has decided to support a government takeover of our nation’s health care system."

Rep. Turner’s Reaction to the House Democrat Health Care Bill
U.S. Representative Mike Turner today issued the following statement responding to the health care reform bill released on 10/29/2009.

Representative Turner’s Statement on the House Floor
Mr. Speaker, if the government’s handling of the outbreak of H1N1 flu, known as swine flu, is any indication of how it will administer a public health care option, we should all be greatly concerned.

Rep. Turner’s Statement Reacting to President Obama’s Health Care Speech
I think the president missed an important opportunity tonight to answer many questions on the public’s mind. Rather than providing meaningful details, the president has simply presented broad objectives. So far, all we have to go on are a handful of healthcare reform bills before Congress. The president didn’t rule out the House plan supported by Speaker Pelosi which calls for a public option as well as $500 billion in cuts to Medicare and another $150 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage to pay for it.

Real Reforms Ignored in Congress’s Major Health Care Push
Not only will President Obama's plan have serious consequences for our struggling economy, but would likely result in higher costs for American families and businesses, and place at risk Medicare benefits for millions of seniors. Unfortunately, real reforms that could actually improve the current system are being ignored by both the president and the majority in Congress.

Americans Deserve Personal Choice in Health Care Reform
There is no issue that affects Americans more deeply than access to affordable health care. Because access to reliable medical care is so important to all Americans and their families, we must make sure reforms protect and enhance our ability to choose our own doctors and keep the best health care.
