Tiberi Statement on House Passage of AHCA
"With the American Health Care Act, we are providing relief from Obamacare's pervasive problems that are hurting Americans from all walks of life."Congressman Pat Tiberi released the following statement after the House passed the American Health Care Act:
“Obamacare is failing and it is leaving people with higher costs, fewer choices and unreliable care. With the American Health Care Act, we are providing relief from these pervasive problems that are hurting Americans from all walks of life.
“Today’s vote is one part in our multi-step approach to carefully transition to a patient-centered system where people have better access to quality care at a price they can afford. It ensures that no one can be denied coverage based on pre-existing conditions. It will also give states additional flexibility and resources to meet the health care needs of their populations if they show they can drive down costs and boost coverage.
“This fight to fix our health care system isn’t over. As the Senate considers the reforms in AHCA, I urge my colleagues in the House and the Trump administration to continue to focus on additional steps we can take to restore the free market, increase choices, lower costs and put Medicaid on a sustainable financial path so it is available for the most vulnerable patients. After seven years of Obamacare’s broken promises, my constituents and all Americans deserve no less.”
