Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) today issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of President Obama's health care law:
"Our health care system desperately needs meaningful reform, but President Obama's health care law is not what we need. As more businesses, unions--and even states--receive exemptions from implementing the law, and business leaders--both small and large--decry the law's burdensome mandates, it is clear the President Obama's law is flawed beyond repair.
"I am proud to have voted to repeal the law and call on my friends in the Senate to act. Let's replace the new health care law with common sense reforms that lower costs, preserve the doctor-patient relationship, permit Americans to keep the coverage they have, allow the private sector to create jobs and follow the Constitution."
