U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) issued the following statement upon voting to pass H.R. 596, a bill to fully repeal Obamacare and provide for alternative policy solutions that expand individual choice, protect health care access, and foster job growth:
"Today, I voted to fully repeal Obamacare and pave the way for patient-focused alternatives that put Americans -- not federal bureaucrats -- in charge of their health care decisions. The president's disastrous health care law was sold to the American people on a bed of false promises. Since the day it was enacted, it has done nothing but restrict choice, limit access, and burden families and small businesses with higher costs. The Obamacare experiment has run its course. The law must be fully repealed and replaced with solutions that protect jobs and restore health care choice and access for American families."
