Every day, my staff and I hear horror stories from folks back home about the devastating impacts of Obamacare.
Folks in the Third District have lost their insurance plans and seen their premiums and deductibles rise for the past seven years. Obamacare has also created an unworkable regulatory environment for doctors and hospitals. Small businesses are crippled by the increased regulations and taxes.
It’s very simple to understand – Obamacare doesn’t work, nor will it get better. This march toward a single-payer system is unacceptable. The choice is clear – we have to repeal and replace this law.
With the change in the White House, we finally have a chance to repeal and replace Obamacare.
President Donald Trump and Congress are working on legislation that will result in lower premiums, increase access to quality healthcare, reduce the federal deficit, and make major entitlement reform by capping Medicaid spending.
Obamacare became much more than just a law. Under President Barack Obama, Obamacare grew into a massive regulatory nightmare.
Make no mistake – these regulations will take more time to undo. The Trump Administration will take the lead there with my full support.
Republicans in Congress will repeal the multitude of taxes that came with Obamacare, which will provide some much-needed relief for middle-income Americans and small business owners.
Further phases will continue to provide relief to Alabamians, while ensuring our values we hold dear are protected.
This effort will increase choices for consumers and allow the free market to take hold of the insurance market to reduce costs, something that Obamacare aimed to do the opposite of.
With President Trump’s strong leadership and Congressional action, Americans will finally experience relief from the crushing weight that is Obamacare. I will continue to fight for the healthcare freedoms folks in Alabama want and need.
