FreedomWorks’ Statement on the President’s Veto of ObamaCare Repeal

Following the news that President Barack Obama vetoed repeal of ObamaCare, FreedomWorks Legislative Affairs Manager Josh Withrow commented:

“If the president really cared about middle-class Americans, he would have signed this bill into law. The middle class is getting screwed by ObamaCare. Those with incomes just high enough to be ineligible for subsidies have to bear the full cost of ObamaCare’s unaffordable health insurance plans.”

“We look forward to seeing congressional Republicans’ plans for a patient-centered alternative to ObamaCare. We’re optimistic that we will be able to repeal and replace this disastrous law in 2017.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
