Rogers on Passage of Repeal Obamacare Bill


Date: Jan. 6, 2016
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed legislation to repeal Obamacare that had previously passed the Senate.

The bill, H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, passed with Rogers' strong support.

"After voting to repeal Obamacare numerous times in the House without the legislation going anywhere in the Senate, I am thrilled that today this bill has passed both chambers and will finally go to President Obama's desk. H.R. 3762 not only repeals Obamacare, it defunds Planned Parenthood and reduces Federal deficits by an estimated $78.1 billion by 2025. The American people have been very clear in their priorities that this flawed health care law just does not work for them, that Planned Parenthood must not be a wholesale provider of abortions and government spending must be kept in check. Now, President Obama will have the opportunity to make a choice, stand with the priorities of Americans or stand against them by vetoing the repeal bill," Rogers said.
