CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER VOTES TO REPAIR AMERICA’S BROKEN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM

 

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) voted to repeal Obamacare and repair America’s broken healthcare system through the American Health Care Act.

“One size fits all, big government programs just don’t work.  They aren’t American,
” said Congressman Pittenger.  “95 out of 100 North Carolina counties have just one choice for insurance under Obamacare.  Next year in Iowa, thousands of families could have no choice as the last insurer is close to pulling out.  This is what Democrats are fighting to preserve?

“The American Health Care Act restores your right to choose the health plan best for your family.  We include sustainable protections for pre-existing conditions, common sense tax breaks to make insurance affordable, and the most significant reform of Medicaid in over 50 years.  Through this legislation, we also defund Planned Parenthood.

“Obamacare is in a death spiral.  Americans deserve affordable health care choices.  Today, House Republicans delivered on our promise.”


The American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628) today passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 217-213.
