WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Rouzer released the statement below following the decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor:
“Today, the House of Representatives fell short of finding 216 votes necessary to repeal and replace as much of Obamacare as allowable under the rules of Budget Reconciliation.
Congressman David Rouzer released the statement below regarding the GOP healthcare proposal:
“The GOP healthcare repeal and replacement is a work in progress that will be modified multiple times before passing the House and the Senate. This budget reconciliation bill is the first of three steps to achieving a replacement with the goal of creating more competition and greater access to quality health care. I remain cautiously optimistic that Congress will ultimately come together and pass a reconciliation bill that promotes employment and fiscal restraint.”
