Repealing and Replacing Obamacare

Obamacare hurts millions of Americans with increasingly high premiums and deductible costs for individuals, families, and businesses. That's why one of the first things that Congress is doing this term is repealing and replacing Obamacare. Congress will use a process known as budget reconciliation, which allows certain laws to move through the Senate with only 51 votes, to repeal the law. It's the same mechanism that Democrats used to pass Obamacare in 2010 without a single Republican vote.
The House will work to replace Obamacare with a health care system that will provide Americans with insurance coverage that is more affordable and accessible. The Republican health care plan will be built on four main principles:
- Give you more control over which plan you pick. Your plan should meet your needs, not Washington mandates.
- You shouldn't have to worry about being turned away or losing your coverage due to age, medical conditions or circumstances.
- We must cut bureaucracy to accelerate the development of new medical devices and therapies.
- Protect medicare for senior citizens today, and ensure that medicare will survive for future generations.
Repealing and replacing Obamacare will restore your choices in healthcare and ensure that your medical decisions are made by you and your doctor. For more information on the plan, please click here.
