Congressman Pat Tiberi, chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement regarding the American Health Care Act, legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare through the reconciliation process:

“The American Health Care Act is our plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a 21st century system that gives people better access to quality and affordable health care. It contains specific reforms to provide relief from Obamacare’s taxes and mandates, and gives patients the tools they need to be in charge of their own care, like increased access to health savings accounts and tax credits to help individuals and families purchase the care they need.

“Our legislation contains the ideas and priorities we outlined 8 months ago. We are moving forward with our deliberate and transparent approach to bring real health care solutions to the American people. Our next step is the markup on Wednesday in the Ways and Means Committee. I invite everyone to read our plan on ReadtheBill.GOP.

Note: The Ways and Means Committee has scheduled a markup of this legislation on Wednesday, March 8, at 10:30 a.m., in room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building.
