WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted on a measure opposing President Obama’s veto of the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act – a bill Congress sent to the president’s desk repealing the main pillars of Obamacare, prohibiting funding for abortion providers like Planned Parenthood, and providing increased funding for community health centers to help direct more resources to women’s health care.
 
“President Obama has defied the will of a majority of Americans and ignored their voices by insisting on a law that is destructive to the health of our people and our economy. As the actions of Congress have made clear, the president is the only person standing in the way of patient-centered solutions. We will be the ones standing on the side of the American people continuing this important fight to ensure patients, families and doctors are the ones making medical decisions, not Washington. We will defend the will of the people against an intrusive and arrogant Washington bureaucracy while championing solutions that will expand access to quality, affordable health care choices for all Americans.”
