From Rick Perry's "Cut, Balance, and Grow" plan:
ObamaCare is a man-made disaster of epic proportions that will make health care more expensive and the budget more bloated, and it must be repealed as soon as possible using any and all means necessary. Health care reform should have focused on increasing access while reducing costs, but ObamaCare made our health care system's problems even worse. ObamaCare added trillions of dollars in new federal programs that we can't afford, will drive up health care costs for American families and businesses, and diverted more than $500 billion from Medicare. True reform of Medicare and the nation's health care system are essential, but that process cannot begin until ObamaCare is repealed.

In addition, Texas and 25 other states have challenged the constitutionality of Congress' authority to force individuals to buy health insurance. The Obama administration continues to spend excessively and impose unfunded mandates upon the states, including this federal health care reform bill that will cost Texas taxpayers more than $27 billion over 10 years for the Medicaid expansion starting in 2014.
