"Today is a good day for the future of America. Today we took a step toward improved, budget-conscious, job-creating health care. The days of hidden costs packed in massive bills are over, and so it is fitting that the new House of Representatives begins with a full repeal of the Democrats’ costly healthcare law."

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a repeal of the budget-busting health care legislation that President Obama signed into law last year. Congressman Mike Conaway (R-TX) made the following statement after today’s vote on H.R. 2:

"Today is a good day for the future of America. Today we took a step toward improved, budget-conscious, job-creating health care. The days of hidden costs packed in massive bills are over, and so it is fitting that the new House of Representatives begins with a full repeal of the Democrats’ costly healthcare law.

"Obamacare was built on a mound of false promises. An effective health care reform will allow people to keep their insurance if they are happy with it, healthcare premiums will go down, employers will be able to offer health plans of their choice, and seniors will see Medicare reform. In addition, it will help with job creation, be cost-effective, and not create untenable mandates on individuals and employers. It should allow for valuable innovation and assist with the development of improvements in modern medicine. And most importantly, health care should be more affordable. All of these are essential features of an effective health care reform bill, and none of these were found in the Democrats’ bill.

"I applaud my colleagues for voting to save American jobs, keep taxes in check, and not adding $2.6 trillion to the already bloated national deficit. Health care reform should be approached deliberately and with care and compassion. Now we have the opportunity to begin the process of health care reform with bipartisan support.”
