House Budget Resolution Paves Way for Obamacare Relief
(Washington, DC) – Today, Rep. Rob Woodall (GA-07) issued the following statement regarding his support of the House-passed budget resolution for fiscal year 2017 (S. Con. Res. 3). The measure initiates the budget process known as reconciliation that will be utilized to repeal Obamacare.
“Beginning with the broken process by which it was rammed through Congress, Obamacare has failed the American people, and today Congress took the first step to initiate the process of breathing life back into local health care markets, as more than a third of the counties in America have been limited to a single insurance company choice on the Obamacare exchange. We are committed to replacing Obamacare’s failed vision of ‘government knows best’ with the proven model of ‘family knows best.’ There is much left to do as we work to free those American families trapped in the current spiral of rising costs and shrinking choices, but together, you and I will put patients back in control.”
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
