FreedomWorks Comments on ObamaCare Lite

Jason Pye, FreedomWorks’ director of public policy and legislative affairs, made the following statement:

"This is ObamaCare-lite. It creates a new entitlement through the refundable tax credits. It allows insurance companies to assess a 30 percent penalty on those who don’t keep continuous coverage for 63 days, which is an individual mandate by another name.

​"​We’re 100 percent behind the efforts of Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and the House Freedom Caucus to bring real patient-centered alternatives to replace ObamaCare, and we have endorsed Rand Paul and Mark Sanford’s ObamaCare Replacement Act, which sets the benchmark for a shift away from ObamaCare."​
