Comstock Votes To Repeal and Replace Obamacare
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock issued the following statement on legislation that passed the House today which would repeal and replace Obamacare by a vote of 239 to 186:
“When I was traveling across the District last year, I heard many stories of how Obamacare has failed my constituents from increasing premiums on families to throwing folks off existing plans and hurting small businesses,” said Congresswoman Barbara Comstock. “The legislation I voted for today not only repeals Obamacare, but also requires Congress to go back to the drawing board and finally focus on patient-centered healthcare reform for all Americans.”
The legislation that passed today preserves a patient’s ability to keep his or her health plan if he or she likes it, and provides people with pre-existing conditions access to affordable health coverage among other patient-centered reforms.
