    LANCE. Thank you, Chairman Price, for your tremendous leadership on this and many other issues.

    Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, the first ObamaCare repeal bill that Congress sends to the President's desk since the law's enactment in 2010.

    This bill effectively repeals mandates and taxes at the very heart of the law and saves taxpayers nearly half a trillion dollars over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

    Our action here in the House today is an important step toward replacing ObamaCare with patient-centric solutions that lower healthcare costs, protect jobs, and allow Americans to keep their doctors and their health care if they like them.

    To be clear, there is more work that needs to be done to make full repeal and replacement a reality, but our congressional efforts today provide important momentum to help make that a reality in 2017 with a new President.

    I urge all my colleagues to support H.R. 3762.
