Vote to repeal and replace Obamacare passes House

WASHINGTONU.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson issued the following statement after the House voted to pass the American Health Care Act:

“Today, I voted in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare and to advance a bill that aims to create a health care system that works for all Americans. Obamacare has been failing with one in three counties in the country now only having access to one insurance provider, out of control premiums, and limited choices for consumers.

“The American Health Care Act aims to bring lower costs, increase choice, and provide assurances to those with pre-existing conditions that they will be able to maintain coverage. During this process, I worked with House leaders to address concerns I initially had over costs for aging Americans and our most vulnerable populations. Leadership acted in good faith and continued making important changes to the bill. With these changes and today’s vote I am optimistic that we can continue through the legislative process and deliver a healthcare reform bill to the President’s desk.”
