The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “ObamaCare,” is truly an unprecedented piece of federal legislation. Unfortunately for states, the precedent it sets is a bad one—one that will result in overburdened Medicaid programs, higher taxes, an unconstitutional requirement that individuals purchase health insurance, and a federal takeover of health insurance regulation.

The State Legislators Guide to Repealing ObamaCare will be an essential tool as you look to halt ObamaCare’s harmful effects and implement real healthcare reform that is both market-oriented and patient-centered.
