Huizenga: It’s Time to Provide West Michigan Families Relief from ObamaCare
Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) issued the following statement after voting in support of the American Health Care Act (AHCA):
“While today is a significant first step, it’s important to remember that this is the beginning, not the end of the journey to fix our nation’s broken healthcare system. The American Health Care Act provides the relief countless families across West Michigan have been asking for. The AHCA repeals the job-destroying taxes and punitive mandates of ObamaCare while lowering premiums and restoring the freedom for hardworking Michiganders to choose the healthcare plan that best fits their needs – not what Washington dictates they must have.
"This legislation also includes important protections for Americans to ensure those with a pre-existing condition are not denied coverage. Lastly, in terms of Medicaid, the AHCA provides states with the flexibility and tools necessary to innovate so each state can meet the unique needs of their residents. As the American Health Care Act heads to the Senate, I encourage our Senators to remember that ObamaCare is collapsing. It’s time to move away from the Washington knows best mentality and let the American people make their own health care decisions.
