Washington–Today, Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11) voted for the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for FY 2017, which includes the legislative pathway to repealing Obamacare. Congressman Conaway released the following statement upon passage:

“There is no question that Obamacare was built on broken promises to the American people.Today’s vote is a critical first step towards repealing President Obama’s signature healthcare law, as it will allow the Senate to repeal Obamacare without the risk of Democrats filibustering the vote. It’s important to note that as we repeal Obamacare, we will be working on a plan for a 21st century healthcare system. Our plan will be patient-centered, making healthcare available to all in a way that leaves individuals and families in charge of their own healthcare decisions, rather than the government. While this vote is just the first step towards repealing Obamacare, it is a significant step towards moving our nation forward from President Obama’s disastrous healthcare law.”
