Rep. Young honored with Spirit of Enterprise Award in Soldotna, wants Obamacare repealed

    Young says one large issue facing families and small businesses is Obamacare. He would like to see the act repealed.

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce presented Alaska Congressman Don Young with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award at a Joint Kenai/Soldotna Chamber of Commerce Luncheon Wednesday. The award was given in recognition of Young's support for pro-growth, pro-jobs policies during the first session of the 114th Congress.

    Young said, "In Alaska and across the nation, a strong and healthy economy depends on the many contributions of our small businesses." Young says one large issue facing families and small businesses is Obamacare. He would like to see the act repealed. "“Well first we have Obamacare, which has been a failure," stated Young. "Some people are having to pay more than their house payments for health insurance, so that will be addressed, small businesses especially. The penalty to a small business is, if they don’t provide health insurance, is they face a fine. We”re gonna address that whole issue.”

    Young plans to return to Alaska in October.
