Obamacare Repeal Heads to President's Desk

Reconciliation bill upholds House commitment to send full repeal

Washington, January 6, 2016 | Jeff Butler (202-225-2576)
Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10) released the following statement after the House concurred with the Senate Amendment to H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act which sends a full repeal of Obamacare to President Obama's desk:

“This evening the House upheld our commitment to the American people and sent a full repeal of Obamacare to President Obama’s desk. This law has not worked. For my constituents in Western North Carolina it has meant higher costs, less access, and inferior care. It is time we start over.

“This reconciliation bill fully repeals Obamacare, saving taxpayers over $500 billion. It cuts all federal funding to Planned Parenthood, ensuring our tax dollars never again fund their horrific acts. Most importantly, it provides an opportunity to start over so we can provide the American people real healthcare reform that lowers costs and improves care.

“Now President Obama must decide, he can continue to defend this disastrous law or he can provide the American people relief they have sought from this failing policy.”
