U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), cosponsored seven new pieces of legislation to repeal what he described as the excessive burdens of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“Since ObamaCare was quickly pushed through Congress two years ago, health care premiums have risen, taxes have increased, and more people have become dependent on an inefficient government system,” Inhofe said Friday. “It is no surprise that the Congressional Budget Office recently released new estimates showing the health care reform law is going to cost yet another $164 billion than previous estimates, and 3 million additional people will be forced into the government system as more employers will not be able to afford offering insurance to their employees.

“In the 113thCongress, I have already cosponsored several pieces of health care legislation, including a full repeal of the ObamaCare. I will continue to fight to see this law repealed and work towards common-sense health care solutions with my Senate colleagues.”
