Congress Sends Bill to Repeal ObamaCare, Defund Planned Parenthood to the President’s Desk

HR 3762

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed the Senate version of H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act.

“The American people deserve a health care system that protects the most vulnerable and provides affordable access to care for all. Today, the People’s House took a critical step in securing that system by sending to the president’s desk a bill that repeals Obamacare and puts a hold on all taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood.

“In Eastern Washington, too many families, small businesses, and healthcare providers are suffering under the President’s broken healthcare law, and I call on the President to follow the will of the people by signing this legislation into law. Our aim is to provide the highest-quality healthcare – to the greatest number of people – at the lowest possible cost, but that’s not going to come from top-down policies in Washington, D.C.”

McMorris Rodgers is a lead advocate and author of the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act, which passed the House in 2015. It will help to modernize and personalize health care, encourage greater innovation, support research, and streamline the system to deliver better, faster treatments and cures to more patients.
