In-Depth: Sponsoring Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH) introduced this bill to repeal the individual mandate and the employer mandate that were enacted under the Affordable Care Act:
“This healthcare package would eliminate the growth-hindering effects of [President Obama’s] healthcare law. The medical device tax and the individual and employer mandates are two of the most significant, ill-advised policies and my package of bills would fix this once and for all.”
This legislation currently has the support of eight cosponsors in the House, all of whom are Republicans.
