Pittenger statement on Obamacare repeal & replace bill
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER STATEMENT ON OBAMACARE REPEAL AND REPLACE LEGISLATION
WASHINGTON – Tonight, House Republicans released legislative text of their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) issued this statement:
“With skyrocketing premiums and insurers fleeing the market, Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight. As Republicans have promised for the past seven years, The American Health Care Act will create more choices, lower costs, and give hardworking American families control of their own health care again.
“Furthermore, this bill maintains protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, allows young adults to stay on their parents’ plan, and ensures a stable transition period while eliminating the onerous government mandates. As we proceed through a transparent legislative process, I look forward to hearing from constituents and working with a unified Republican government to deliver market driven health care to the American people.”
