It’s Not Ok!

BY DAVID CHANG – It’s not ok!

By now you have all heard that the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare’s individual mandate as a valid exercise of Congress’ power to impose taxes.


Simply stated, ObamaCare policies are only constitutional when considered a TAX.

What’s important to take away from this morning’s decision is that the Court rules on whether something is constitutional, not if it’s a good policy for our country. And while the Court has said that the law is constitutional, it remains a flawed policy for the people and businesses here at home in Hawaii. Under ObamaCare:

  • Health care costs continue to skyrocket.
  • Up to 20 million Americans could lose their employer-based coverage.
  • A panel of unelected bureaucrats now has the unprecedented authority to come between our kapunas and their doctors.
  • The rules and regulations placed on job creators and small businesses make it nearly impossible to hire new workers.

The last thing we need is another tax, especially ​at a time when the people of Hawaii and our nation desperately need jobs.

Your help is critical. Your small monthly donation will make a difference!

The HRP is committed to electing representatives who understand the economy, respect small businesses, and can provide strong and sensible leadership.

From top to bottom, the Hawaii Republican Party’s candidates offer an opportunity to provide this leadership and put Hawaii and America on the path toward a brighter future.

Can I count on your support to help the HRP elect Republicans? Yourinvestment will give us the resources needed to put the right leadership in office.

David S. Chang, Chair of the Hawaii Republican Party
