House Clears Bill Dismantling Obamacare, Sends to President
(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his support of H.R. 3762, the “Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act” to end the destructive policies of the Affordable Care Act – commonly known as Obamacare – and send the bill to the White House. The measure would also end federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year and redirects those funds to community health centers.
“The unfortunate reality is that the regulatory mandates of Obamacare have been bad for American families and bad for our economy from the start – and continue to be an overwhelming burden with higher costs, fewer choices, and job-killing federal regulations across all industries. Since its beginning, the so-called Affordable Care Act over-promised and under-delivered while moving the country further from affordable, patient-centered health care. Removing this misguided legislation by its roots is the first step, and H.R. 3762 accomplishes the goal while paving the way for long-term solutions that offer accessibility without a government mandate, lower costs through common sense incentives for health care providers, and individual choice in the marketplace. These are the principles violated by Obamacare, and I’m proud to stand with the American people as we work to reinstate them. It’s my hope that President Obama will join us.”
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.
