Providing for Consideration of Senate Amendment to H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015by Representative Jackie Walorski
Posted on 2016-01-06
WALORSKI. I thank the gentleman for yielding.
Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of the rule for the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015.
This important legislation would repeal the employer and individual mandates, the ObamaCare slush fund, and the numerous harmful taxes on everything from medical devices to health insurers to the insurance plans themselves.
Mr. Speaker, ObamaCare is an unpopular, failed law. Polls have shown it, elections have demonstrated it, and rising premiums have proven it.
I wasn't in this body when this law passed. I was watching in horror with the rest of the American people as the legislative process was railroaded to push it through.
But let's consider the contrast today to what we have before us, a bill that both the House and the Senate came together to guide through the normal legislative process.
Let's start 2016 the right way and make President Obama own this law in a way that he has not had to do yet. Let's continue to work here in Congress toward a commonsense plan to replace this damaging law.
Mr. McGOVERN. Mr. Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentlewoman from Texas (Ms. Jackson Lee).
