From the office of Congressman Andy Harris:
Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. released the following statement on his vote this evening to repeal The Affordable Care Act – or Obamacare – and lay the foundation for patient-centered reforms that actually improve the quality and access to healthcare.
He also participated in a press conference this afternoon with other members of the GOP Doctors Caucus to raise awareness about the over 20,000 pages of regulations associated with Obamacare.
“The American people deserve a healthcare system that is patient-centered, improves quality and access to care, and lowers costs,” said Harris. “Unfortunately, Obamacare does none of these things. With the IRS targeting groups based on political affiliation, why would we want them running our healthcare? Obamacare was a bad idea when Washington Democrats passed it, and now we are watching the train wreck as it’s being implemented. Obamacare is clearly not the right way to go, so that’s why I voted today to repeal it, laying the foundation for healthcare reform that works.”
