Washington – January 7, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement today after voting in favor of H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. This legislation repeals the major provisions of Obamacare and blocks federal funding for Planned Parenthood:
“Despite recent headlines, the House began to shift momentum and restore power back to the people in 2015 – and we are now seeing the results. Today, as Republicans in Congress promised, we sent a reconciliation bill directly to the President’s desk that will dismantle Obamacare and block taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, an organization that has unashamedly profited from the sale of innocent unborn babies.
“With healthcare costs reaching an all-time high, this legislation is a critical first step toward restoring patient-centered health care that best suits the needs of individual businesses and families. As a result of Obamacare, many individuals are now paying double – sometimes triple – for healthcare, and taxpayers are footing the bill for this unworkable, disastrous trillion-dollar bill. This is hardly the American dream that our founders envisioned; and, is anything but affordable.
“Americans deserve a healthcare system that works for, not against, them. We are working hard to bring legislation to the table that reduces the cost of healthcare, restores free market competition, creates personalized insurance plans, and gets government out of the way.”
