- America now has the opportunity to achieve real health care reform
CHEYENNE: Representative Cynthia Lummis spoke with Wyoming Liberty Group immediately after today’s House vote to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act to provide her views on the vote and the outlook for the future.
“If we are able to retain anything close to what we have in the House now, we can hang repeal on a reconciliation bill in the Senate,” said Representative Lummis. “If we have even 51 votes in the Senate, then it would go to President Romney to sign.”
Today, the House voted to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, by a vote of 244 to 185, with five democrats voting to repeal the legislation. In the wake of the Supreme Court decision to uphold the law, Republicans sought to create a new record of House Representatives’ votes on the law. This was the 33rd time the House voted in favor of repeal of all or parts of the health care law.
“Most people understand the burdens socialized medicine imposes,” said Susan Gore, founder of Wyoming Liberty Group. “Eventual repeal will get health care reform off to a clean start and open the door to free market solutions that respect human dignity and choice.”
