Petri, U.S. House Vote to Repeal Obamacare


Location: Unknown

By a vote of 244 to 185, the House voted today to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the health care law also known as "Obamacare." Rep. Tom Petri voted in favor of the repeal effort.

"I voted against the President's health care law when it was rammed through Congress the first time, and again when the House voted for repeal in early 2011. It is fundamentally flawed and will only make worse our skyrocketing health care costs and federal deficits," Petri said.

"We need the right reforms to eliminate waste throughout the system and reward high quality, low-cost care. We should be choosing approaches which give consumers incentives to use their health care dollars wisely. Instead, we are going in the opposite direction by turning decisions over to the government," he said.
