FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – In anticipation of the vote to repeal Obamacare, Rep. Rich Nugent (R-FL-05) released the following statement:

“Today’s vote to repeal the healthcare law represents a promise fulfilled to the American people.  Everyone agrees that the health system in America needs to be reformed, but the question is how we do it.  The American people demonstrated in poll after poll, at town-hall meetings across the nation, and in the elections last November that they did not like the top-down, government-knows-best approach to healthcare reform.

“Today’s vote to repeal Obamacare corrects that, but only partially because the unwanted reforms must be replaced with ideas from real people.  Tomorrow we will vote to direct the relevant House committees to gather ideas from doctors, small business owners, and families about how they want to reform the system.

“House Republicans will ensure that families are not denied care because of pre-existing conditions, that the cost of care is brought down by implementing malpractice reform, and that employers see incentives and not penalties for providing insurance.  These are just a few of the reforms that Americans say they want enacted.  By repealing Obamacare and things like the unconstitutional individual mandate and then replacing it with reforms that give Americans insurance options they can afford, we will close the gap between what the American people asked for and what their government is giving them.”
