Senate Bill Fails to Fulfill Sen. McConnell’s Promise

FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon released the following statement about the Senate healthcare bill:

“Unfortunately, the Senate bill is an amendment to ObamaCare, not a repeal of it.

“For more than seven years, Republicans ran on repealing ObamaCare, and voters responded by giving the GOP a majority in the House in 2010, control of the Senate in 2014, and the White House in 2016. Leader Mitch McConnell even said he would repeal ObamaCare ‘root and branch.’ This bill, however, breaks those promises.

“We look forward to an open amendment process through which conservatives in the Senate – including Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz – will have the opportunity to put forward language that will gut ObamaCare’s regulatory structure and reduce health insurance premiums.”
