Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement regarding the American Health Care Act:
“Obamacare is collapsing under the many broken promises that have doomed it from its inception. Americans were not able to keep the health plans they liked, lost access to doctors they preferred, experienced premium and deductible increases, and saw health care providers leave the marketplace in droves – all while the federal deficit continues to soar to record levels. The passage of Obamacare was predicated on its failure; the eventual collapse of the system was intended to bring about single-payer, government-run health care.
Doing nothing is not an option. Someone has to act responsibly and offer real health care solutions for Americans. Today, I remain just as committed to enacting health care solutions that protect Americans from the harmful effects of Obamacare as I was yesterday.”
