“Since the implementation of Obamacare, we have seen premiums increase and health care coverage options disappear,” he said. “The majority of Americans believe that there is a better way than the President’s onerous health care law.”
He called the measure a reconciliation bill that will become the first repeal measure to reach the president’s desk. “The President will finally have to answer to the American people,” he said. “If and when the President vetoes this legislation, he is sending a clear message that he will not work with Congress to abandon this burdensome law and work toward a better option that will allow people to buy affordable health care by way of the free market.”
The House measure also defunds Planned Parenthood and divert taxpayer funding to non-profit health organizations that do not provide abortions.
“It has been two days since the start of the Second Session of the 114th Congress and we are starting off on the right foot,” Weber said. “I hope that we continue this momentum in passing legislation that will finally put America first.”
