Tempe, AZ – Today Vernon Parker released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision on Obamacare:
“Today’s decision is one which is disastrous to millions of Americans. It raises taxes by half a trillion dollars on working families and cuts Medicare by half a trillion dollars on our seniors. It will stifle economic growth by hurting small businesses. And it does nothing to address the rising cost of healthcare which will put an increased burden on our national debt. It’s why we need to repeal Obamacare and replace it with common sense legislation that allows younger Americans the opportunity to have affordable healthcare and ensure those with pre-existing conditions will get the coverage they need. Ideas like portability and medical savings accounts will return competition and drive down costs. For these reasons I pledge to repeal and replace this socialistic legislation, and will work to stop this President from his stated goal of creating a single payer system,” said Vernon Parker.
Parker, 52, is a rising star in the Republican Party. He is current councilman and former mayor of Paradise Valley. Raised by his grandmother in a severely underprivileged neighborhood, Parker was able to escape his environment through love, education, and hard work.
