Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement on the House passage of S. Con. Res. 3, Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2017:
"Today, House Republicans took an important step forward in upholding our promise to provide a path forward from the failed Obamacare policies. It is important to be clear--today's vote is the first step to replace the unworkable Obamacare which is causing skyrocketing costs while delaying and denying needed services. We're putting together a plan that provides a smooth transition to better health care, while still providing a safety net.
I look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan, and the nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Chairman Tom Price, to put forth legislation that will make health care accessible and affordable by allowing association health plans, portable insurance, and the purchase of insurance across state lines. I am confident that our legislation will increase options and lower costs for all Americans, especially those in South Carolina."
