Rep. Tom Graves Votes to Begin Obamacare Repeal Process

     Washington, D.C.  Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed a budget for fiscal year 2017 (S. Con. Res. 3), which unlocks a fast-track procedure known as “reconciliation” that Republicans will use to repeal Obamacare.

 

 

      “This is a mission to rescue the families caught up in the death spiral that is Obamacare,” said Rep. Graves. “Georgia families are facing double-digit premium increases, fewer – if any – choices and deductibles so high it doesn’t even feel like they have insurance. That’s why we took the first step in repealing Obamacare this week.”

 

      “It’s important to understand that repealing Obamacare doesn’t mean we’re pulling the rug out from under anyone,” Graves continued. “We’re going to get rid of the mandates and tax increases, while putting in place market-based policies that give people affordable choices, including those with pre-existing conditions, such as allowing insurance companies to sell their policies across state lines. Above all, our policies will put families and patients first.”

Mr. Graves knows the only reason GA families are suffering form healthcare related costs is because the state's leadership, including himself, declined to expand Medicaid like the states whose families are seeing lower premiums and across the board success under Obamacare. Blame GA's governor and congressional representatives , not Obamacare.
