From a press release from Rep. Buddy Carter (R, GA-1), a member of the Health Subcommittee on the House Energy and Commerce Committee:
“The games have gone on for too long. While I am proud of the legislation we passed in the House to repeal and replace Obamacare, it’s clear it does not have the necessary votes in the Senate. We cannot afford to let Washington gridlock derail our efforts and fail the American people.
Today, I am calling for a vote on a blanket repeal of Obamacare. Majorities in the House and Senate have supported this measure in the past and it’s time to do it again with a president who supports our efforts. Then we can come together on reforms to health care to lower costs and restore choice and control to patients.”
