Once again, the Obama Administration has shown complete disregard for a free market economy driven by supply and demand.
ICYMI - ROKITA FIGHTS FOR CONSUMER TRANSPARENCY: LEADS INTRODUCTION OF BIPARTISAN AUTO SAFETY LEGISLATION
This is a win for consumers and manufacturers because it increases transparency without mandating it. The bill promotes innovation and the integration of safety technologies in new vehicles without forcing automakers to comply with heavy-handed federal regulations.
"In trying times like these, I have no doubt we will see the kindness and generosity of Hoosiers in communities across the state. While the flood damage I saw today is a temporary setback, I know our farmers will bounce back thanks to their strong work ethic and resiliency," said Rep. Todd Rokita.
"Hoosiers are known for their strong work ethic, which I have experienced time and time again. I look forward to more opportunities to step into the shoes of Indiana’s workers."
This decision does not change the fact that Americans need real health care reform that lowers costs, empowers patients, improves access, and increases competition.
I agree with Governor Pence that the EPA should significantly revise this rule and will continue to fight in Congress to eliminate overreaching government regulations that threaten Hoosier jobs and the state of Indiana.
If our shared goal is to increase student success in the classroom and if we know that nutritious meals play an important role in that success, then we have a responsibility to pursue reforms that better ensure taxpayer dollars are well spent and students well served.
Repealing the medical device tax is a win not only for Hoosier businesses in the life sciences industry, but also for patients who rely on medical devices for a better quality of life. I am a firm believer that if government wants less of something, all we need to do is tax it. When it comes to life-saving medical technology, I want more of it. I want to maintain U.S. leadership and innovation, and that is why it is so important to repeal this tax.
This legislation is about doing what is good for Indiana and America. International trade supports nearly 800,000 jobs in Indiana – more than one in five.
This is a common-sense, bipartisan bill that promotes innovation, empowers consumers, and protects lives. I thank my colleagues for their support and look forward to working with them to advance this important legislation.
