WARRENTON, VA – Today, America’s Liberty PAC President John Tate released the following statement after House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act from the House schedule for the second consecutive day:
“Despite what some inside the beltway “experts” say, this was a win for America. I want to thank our supporters who flooded congressional offices with phone calls and emails, and who gave us the ability to run targeted ads in key districts.
Also, I want to thank the members of the House Freedom Caucus for standing strong against incredible pressure and Senator Rand Paul for his leadership.
Now it’s time to pass full repeal as promised. There are a number of ways this can be done, despite what Speaker Ryan and some in leadership claim. First, they could simply just pass the same bill they already passed in 2015. Or they could pass Rand Paul’s bill.”
In 2015, the Republican-controlled U.S. House passed a clean repeal of Obamacare, knowing it had no chance of being signed into law. ALPAC asks for nothing less than the same clean repeal passed in 2015, followed by a free market solution to our healthcare crisis like Senator Rand Paul’s Obamacare Replacement Act.
Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Mark Sanford introduced the Obamacare Replacement Act (S. 222 & H.R. 1072), which applies market-based solutions to our healthcare crisis.
