WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives voted 244-185 in favor of H.R. 6079, the Repeal of Obamacare Act. After voting for repeal, Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss) released the following statement:
“Everything that supporters of this law told us when they were passing it has turned out to be false. They said if you like your health care plan you can keep it, it’s not a tax hike, insurance premiums will go down, it will not affect religious liberty, and the list goes on.
I disagreed with the Supreme Court ruling, but the majority opinion did note that it is not their job to say whether or not this is a good law. I can answer that question for them: Obamacare is bad for freedom, bad for health care, and bad for job creation and that is why it must be repealed.”
Congressman Alan Nunnelee represents Mississippi’s First Congressional District and serves on the House Appropriations Committee. This is his first term.
