Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after President Donald Trump huddled with House Republicans to urge passage of the American Health Care Act.
“President Trump made it clear this morning that the plan we have put forward fulfills the promise he made – and members of Congress made – to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Bucshon. “The American Health Care Act, which is on the House floor this week, is the first and necessary step in that process. I’m happy to have the full support of the President; and look forward to working with his administration, the Department of Health and Human Services, and my colleagues in Congress as we work to bring families relief from the Obamacare disaster.”
President Trump’s meeting with the House Republican Conference comes on the heels of his speech in Louisville last night where told supporters the American Health Care Act, “…is our long-awaited chance to finally get rid of Obamacare.”
