Rep. Tom Graves Votes to Repeal Obamacare

Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 596, legislation that would repeal Obamacare:

“We need real health care reform that puts patients first and expands choice, not Obamacare’s top-down mandates that have resulted in higher premiums, limited choice and the cancellation of millions of health care plans. By repealing Obamacare in its entirety, we can start fresh on health care reform without the constraints of the unworkable and unfixable disaster that is Obamacare. House Republicans are developing patient-centered solutions, which preserve personal freedom, expand choice, and allow people to keep the doctor and health insurance plan they like and trust.”

Last week, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced a new working group to continue developing patient-centered health care solutions to replace Obamacare. The group’s members are Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, and Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline.

While House Republicans are committed to repealing Obamacare in its entirety, they have successfully fought to repeal, defund or restrain 10 provisions of Obamacare since 2010. These include repealing burdensome 1099 tax reporting requirements for small businesses, reducing funding for the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), and requiring an accurate income verification system before subsidies are dispersed on the exchange.
