WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) today released the following statement in response to Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL) and Congressman David Schweikert’s (R-AZ) proposed amendment to the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
“Today is another example of House Republicans’ unwavering commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and provide immediate relief to those trapped in this failing law. Thanks to the leadership of Vice President Pence and Republican Study Committee Chairman Walker, Members of Congress have come together to propose ideas that will further strengthen our legislation—lowering costs, increasing choices, and expanding access to care.
“I commend Congressmen Palmer and Schweikert for moving the ball forward with their amendment, which will help drive down Obamacare’s skyrocketing premiums while continuing to help our nation’s most vulnerable patients. I’m confident with this thoughtful and collaborative approach, we will continue to make improvements and deliver on our promise to the American people.”
