WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement after the Senate amended and passed H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015.
“Chairman Enzi and his Senate Republican colleagues should be applauded for their hard work in passing a reconciliation bill that goes a long way toward lifting the burden of Obamacare from individuals, families, health care providers, job creators, and our economy at large. The president’s health care law is doing real harm – increasing premiums and out-of-pocket costs, reducing access to care, levying more taxes and regulations on an already weakened economy, and injecting unnecessary government involvement into the lives of the American people. This damaging law needs to be repealed, so we can put in place positive, patient-centered solutions that would actually expand access to quality, affordable health care choices for all Americans.
“In the days to come, further steps will be taken to send a final reconciliation bill to President Obama’s desk as part of a broader, ongoing commitment to put patients, families and doctors in charge of health care decisions.”
