Freedom Caucus Urges Vote on Obamacare Repeal Bill
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 14, 2017
Washington, D.C. – The House Freedom Caucus called for an expeditious vote in the House on the FY16 budget reconciliation language that passed both the House and the Senate, and was sent to President Obama's desk last year. The Freedom Caucus released the following statement:
“American families are hurting today under the crippling costs of the Affordable Care Act. We made a commitment to the American people to repeal this law--we must keep that promise. We remain open to and encourage a swift vote on a health care package that is market-based, consumer driven, and fair.
Reconciliation is the most critical step in undoing this failing law and the American people cannot afford to wait any longer for us to prove that we are working to relieve their burdens. There is no reason for Republicans to send anything less on repeal to President Trump's desk than we did President Obama's desk.”
Mission statement of the House Freedom Caucus:
“The House Freedom Caucus gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans.”
