Statement from Chairman Diane Black on Passage of the American Health Care Act by the House Budget Committee

Washington, D.C. – Today, after the House Budget Committee reported the American Health Care Act to the House for consideration, Chairman Diane Black released the following statement:

“I am proud of the work done by this committee. Our role in this process is to combine the work of the authorizing committees and report the full bill to the House and we have dutifully completed that responsibility. There is always debate and disagreement during the legislative process but I firmly believe that the result is a better piece of legislation.

Obamacare is collapsing and we made a promise to the American people that we would save them from this disastrous law. We have now taken yet another step toward our goal of bringing our patient-centered, free-market reforms to the American people.”
