Cornyn: Time to Keep Our Promise to Millions Hurt by Obamacare

‘With passage of the AHCA in the House, we have a way forward to do away with government-mandated, one-size-fits-all health care.’

‘And now that the House has passed this legislation, it's up to the Senate to do our job and to keep our promises.’

 ‘So we will work together with all of our colleagues that are willing to work with us, but that means that Republicans are going to be working with 52 Republicans to get this bill passed.’

WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today spoke on the Senate floor following last week’s House passage of the American Health Care Act and discussed the way forward to repeal and replace Obamacare in the Senate. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video of his remarks can be found here

“Last week, our colleagues in the House made a first, necessary step to delivering on our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare and to restore individual choice for a health insurance product that people choose that fits their actual needs, rather than one mandated by Washington, D.C.”

“They passed the American Health Care Act, a bill that provides relief to Americans all across the country. With passage of the AHCA in the House, we have a way forward to do away with government-mandated, one-size-fits-all health care.  And now that the House has passed this legislation, it's up to the Senate to do our job and to keep our promises.”

“I believe we can and we must do better to deliver affordable care that people choose, that meet their individual needs, and not health care that they buy simply because the government is coercing them into doing so. So we will work together with all of our colleagues that are willing to work with us, but that means that Republicans are going to be working with 52 Republicans to get this bill passed.”
