Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today issued the following statement:

“Since I first ran for Congress, I have repeatedly promised to the people of the Sixth District that I would vote to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered reforms.  I am disappointed that we were unable to pass the American Health Care Act last week but I will continue to work with my colleagues to try to find common ground and to develop consensus. I remain committed to the important work of making quality health care more accessible and affordable for the people of Kentucky and all Americans, and taking health care decisions away from the federal government and returning them to where they belong – with patients, families and their doctors.”
