Conaway Votes to Repeal and Replace Obamacare
WASHINGTON, DC — This week, the House of Representatives voted to repeal Obamacare and, Congressman Mike Conaway stated, to repair the health care system by passing the American Health Care Act. Conaway's congressional district includes the Concho Valley.
"Obamacare was full of broken promises. Then-President Obama told the American people time and time again, 'If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor; if you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance.' The American people learned very quickly that under Obamacare, they would not be able to keep their doctor, or their health insurance. In fact, the cost of premiums rose, while access to quality health care fell," Conaway stated in a press release.
Conaway said his vote and the repeal fulfilled a promise to the American people, "To repeal Obamacare, and repair the broken health care system. The American Health Care Act contained all the relief the American people were asking for."
Conaway maintains that the legislation protects individuals with pre-existing conditions are protected and will receive quality coverage. Young people will be able to remain on their family plan until the age of 26. We’ve strengthened Medicaid, and most importantly, we’ve put individuals and their doctors back in control of their own health care decisions.
“The American Health Care Act is the answer that our fractured health care system needs. The time is now for the Senate to act, so President Trump can sign the American Health Care Act into law and rid our nation of the disastrous Obamacare once and for all," Conaway stated.
