Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 596, to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.

“One of the best things we can do in Congress to create an environment for better-paying jobs is to repeal Obamacare.

“Under Obamacare, health insurance premiums have gone up, access to quality care has gone down, and doctors all over this great land are plotting their exit strategies. Not to mention the chilling effect this law has had on our economy, resulting in lost jobs all over America.”
