Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) took to the House Floor today to highlight the negative impacts of Obamacare on Hoosier students and educators.

"In my district, Zionsville Community School Corporation was forced to cut hours for substitute teachers, instructional assistants and other staff because of the employer mandate," Brooks said. "Recently, one Indiana school administrator, who had just cut coaches, aides and assistants’ hours, asked, ‘Did they really think about the seventh- and eighth-grade basketball coach or the substitute teacher or the part-time instructional aide’ when they wrote this law? Schools shouldn’t be forced to cut back on services for kids because Washington is too stubborn to roll back a failed initiative."
