WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Andy Barr released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 45, which repeals Obamacare. Barr was a cosponsor of this bill, which passed the House by a vote of 229-195:
"Today, I voted to repeal Obamacare because hardworking Americans need healthcare reform that truly offers more people better care at a more affordable price. The President’s flawed law hurts American families by increasing the cost of healthcare, stifling medical innovation, and destroying jobs."
Earlier today, Congressman Barr introduced H.R. 2010, the Live by the Laws You Write Act, to close Obamacare’s congressional loophole and ensure that Congress and its staff are not exempt from the laws that it writes.
