The Next Step in Repealing and Replacing Obamacare

In: The Lonestar Weekly   Posted 03/21/2017

Congress has begun the work of repealing and replacing Obamacare. The American Health Care Act is being debated in the House of Representatives, and after the House passes the bill, it will be sent to the Senate for debate.

This legislation would lower net premiums for both young and older Americans. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that Americans would pay 10% less after ten years.

Not only will this legislation improve the quality of and boost access to care, it’s fiscally responsible too. It would reduce the federal deficit by $337 billion. And it would represent the largest entitlement reform in recent memory capping Medicaid spending for the first time and saving taxpayers $880 billion. Finally, by repealing Obamacare’s mandates and taxes, this legislation will save the American people another $883 billion. 

With the American Health Care Act, we are making good on our promise to repeal Obamacare and provide Americans with the coverage they want at a cost they can afford. I want to hear from you.
