Rep. Messer Calls Again for Vote on Obamacare Repeal

WASHINGTON (Friday, April 28, 2017) — Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) again called for his colleagues in the House of Representatives to take a vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – the proposed legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.

“The time is now to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something better,” Messer said. “While Congress delays, Hoosiers continue to suffer with sky-high health care costs and worsening coverage. This legislation drives down costs, while giving states more flexibility and protecting people with pre-existing conditions. It’s past time to take a vote on the bill and keep our promise.  We need to get the bill to the House floor next week.”

This past week, an amendment to the AHCA was proposed that ensures individuals with pre-existing conditions cannot be denied coverage while giving states more flexibility to bring down premiums.

Messer also called on the House of Representatives to vote on the AHCA before the recent two-week Easter break.
