Smith: Republicans’ Health Care Plan Takes Us in Right Direction

Mar 7, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Smith (R-TX) released the following statement on the American Health Care Act.

Rep. Smith: “The health care insurance market is in a death spiral and is in need of a quick response. Without action to fix the mess Obamacare created, premiums and deductibles would continue to go up while the quality of patient care stagnates or declines.

“The two pieces of legislation we have introduced uphold our pledge to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Our plan would eliminate Obamacare’s unpopular taxes and mandates, expand choice, improve access, and lower costs. We would ensure coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and young Americans can stay on their parents’ plan until they are 26. Our goal continues to be affordable care for all Americans. This plan take us in the right direction.”
