WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today voted for H.R. 1173 to repeal a controversial piece of the President's health care law. Concerns over the long-term viability of the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (CLASS Act) have dogged the program since it was included as a key part of the President's health care legislation. The Obama administration has since conceded that the CLASS Act program is "totally unsustainable."

Congressman Amodei: "I think that this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to just how untenable the President's health care law is. Even the Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget Committee called the CLASS Act 'a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing Bernie Madoff would be proud of.'

"More damning still is that the fuzzy math from the CLASS Act was crucial to garnering support for Obamacare, which was passed by the skin of its teeth using parliamentary tricks. I hope that is measure is merely the first step towards complete repeal of the President's ill-conceived takeover of our health care system."
