Ways and Means Republicans Take Historic Action to Repeal Obamacare & Ensure More Americans Have Access to Affordable Care

March 09, 2017

Today the House Ways and Means Committee approved the American Health Care Act (AHCA). This legislation will: 

  • Repeal Obamacare’s massive taxes—including eliminating the unpopular individual and employer mandate penalties that have forced Americans to buy expensive insurance they do not want or need;
  • Help Americans access health care options that are tailored to their needs by providing a monthly tax credit; and
  • Empower individuals and families to spend their health care dollars the way they want and need by enhancing and expanding Health Savings Accounts.

Upon approving the legislation, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) said:

“Ways and Means Republicans just passed legislation that will help Americans finally have access to affordable health care. We voted repeatedly to end Obamacare’s crushing taxes and mandates and ensure patients have more power over their own health care. This legislation reflects President Trump’s strong commitment to improving health care for all Americans. I sincerely thank my colleagues for their hard work and commitment to delivering on the President’s promise.”
