Noem Testifies on Legislation Protecting Tribes from Costly Employer Mandate

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Kristi Noem today testified before the House Ways and Means Committee on her Tribal Employment and Jobs Protection Act, which would protect Native American tribes from the Affordable Care Act’s costly employer mandate. The federal government is already responsible for providing healthcare to tribal members.  Imposing the employer mandate on them is unnecessary and duplicative.  Without relief, tribal governments could be required to cut important services while tribally-owned businesses could be forced to cut jobs.

    Obamacare was a disaster from the beginning
