Marlin Stutzman, Indiana’s Republican congressman from the 3rd district, serving the Ft. Wayne area, says it’s time to give up on repealing Obamacare:
…he was asked a day earlier whether he would support repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which began providing coverage this year, and the Dodd-Frank consumer protection law.
“I think we’re past a point of just a repeal because what we had before, that’s gone. So if you repeal it … we have nothing at all,” Stutzman told a town hall meeting at Lutheran Hospital organized by the local chapter of the National Health Underwriters Association.
Stutzman favors the Healthy Indiana Plan, but says federal dollars should flow to states to deal best with the problems they have locally.
