WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 6, 2017)– Eastern Washington Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement via video today after the House introduced The American Health Care Act, the bill to repeal Obamacare:
“The House just introduced The American Health Care Act. This is our plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a 21st century health care system that works for everyone. We are ensuring a smooth transition, and we’re doing this right – through the step-by-step, committee process. Through regular order – open hearings, open debates — we’re giving people transparency and the opportunity for input. Our legislation is about restoring people’s control over their health care. This bill ensures people with pre-existing conditions have access to care; allows young adults to stay on their parents’ plan until they are 26; helps Americans access affordable, quality health care through monthly tax credits; modernizes Medicaid and strengthens it for our most vulnerable; empowers individuals and families to save and spend their health care dollars the way they want and need; and, dismantles the Obamacare taxes and mandates. By offering more choices, we can help create a 21st Century health care system that provides affordable care, access, and choice. You can read the text of the bill at readthebill.gop.”
