Critz Statement on Health Care Repeal Vote

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Mark S. Critz (PA-12) released the following statement today following the House of Representatives vote on H.R. 6079, the Patients' Rights Repeal Act:

"Americans' top priority remains job creation. Instead of working to fix our economy and to create jobs, House Republicans are wasting time on legislation that will not pass the Senate or be signed into law.

"I opposed the healthcare bill when it passed and I voted to get rid of the individual mandate and the tax on medical devices. I oppose on the Independent Payment Advisory Board -- an unelected board of bureaucrats that could cut Medicare benefits. But, as I've said before, it would be wrong and irresponsible for Congress to go backwards and allow insurance companies to deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, to kick young adults off their parents' health insurance plans, or to re-open the "doughnut hole' which will force seniors to pay more for medicine.

"Let's stop the political games and start working together to fix this law and pass legislation that will create jobs."
