Washington, D.C.–Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement after President Barack Obama signed the Bipartisan Budget Act into law, which contained her proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act’s auto-enrollment mandate:

“I remain committed to achieving a healthcare system that works for North Country families and businesses, and this commonsense legislation is one step in that direction,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This legislation repeals an unnecessary and duplicative part of Obamacare that reduces choice in health coverage and creates confusion that can lead to double enrollment and significant tax penalties on both the employee and employer. I am pleased that the President has signed this common sense proposal into law to protect North Country families and businesses.”
