Two months after being introduced, the RSC's American Health Care Reform Act today gained its 102nd cosponsor.
"House Republicans continue proposing real solutions to address the serious problems that exist in our current health care system," RSC Chairman Steve Scalise said. "I'm proud of the momentum we continue to build for our common-sense alternative to President Obama's health care law as we work to reform our broken health care system. American families and small businesses deserve and demand real solutions to the serious problems that exist in our health care system. While we watch the train wreck that is the rollout of President Obama's health care law, it is encouraging to see my colleagues rally around the patient-centered solutions we have outlined to lower health care costs and increase access so families can once again make their own health care choices free from the interference of Washington politicians and federal agencies like the IRS."
"I am proud to see that our bill is gaining traction in the House," said Dr. Phil Roe, Chairman of the RSC's Health Care Working Group. "We're seeing more reasons every day why President Obama's health care law is the wrong answer to our nation's health care problems. The support behind the RSC proposal is proof that Republicans do have a plan for patient-centered, commonsense health care reform that lowers health care costs, improves insurance choices and creates true portability with your plan. I look forward to continue working to build support for this legislation."
