Club for Growth Praises White House Support of Conservative Health Care Reform

Doug Sachtleben - March 14th, 2017

“President Trump campaigned on interstate competition, and should continue to pressure House leadership to include it in the Republican bill.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to published reports that the White House is urging conservative-backed changes to the House Obamacare alternative:

“Health care reform must fully repeal Obamacare and do what Republicans campaigned on: open up competition and choice to drive down costs. Ryancare fails on these counts, and is actually projected to cause an immediate spike in premiums, while taking nearly a decade to achieve meager reductions,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “President Trump campaigned on interstate competition, and should continue to pressure House leadership to include it in the Republican bill. It will make insurance more affordable so that more people can buy coverage, and that will reduce the demand for Medicaid and subsidies.”

Club for Growth Opposes RyanCare

Doug Sachtleben - March 07th, 2017

“Republicans must immediately repeal Obamacare’s taxes, end the Medicaid expansion, and include interstate competition.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to the American Health Care Act released by House Republicans:

“The problems with this bill are not just what’s in it, but also what’s missing: namely, the critical free-market solution of selling health insurance across state lines,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Such an injection of competition would lead to hundreds of billions of dollars in savings, nullifying any argument by Congressional Republicans that this provision cannot be included in the current bill. If this warmed-over substitute for government-run health care remains unchanged, the Club for Growth will key vote against it. Republicans should be offering a full and immediate repeal of Obamacare’s taxes, regulations, and mandates, an end to the Medicaid expansion, and inclusion of free-market reforms, like interstate competition.”

Club for Growth Supports Conservative Opposition to GOP Effort to Retain and Repair Obamacare

Doug Sachtleben - February 28th, 2017

“The Obamacare repeal that passed Congress in 2015 must be the starting point for any repeal.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in support of conservatives in Congress who say they would reject a GOP Obamacare replacement proposal that was recently leaked:

“Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell need to stand up to those in the Republican party who are fighting to retain and repair Obamacare, rather than repeal and replace it with free-market health care,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “The Club for Growth stands with conservatives in the Senate and House – including Chairman Mike Lee of the Senate Steering Committee, Chairman Mark Meadows of the House Freedom Caucus, and Chairman Mark Walker of the Republican Study Committee – to urge that the starting point for any repeal be the Obamacare repeal which was passed in Congress in 2015. In addition, replacement legislation must include the kind of free-market initiatives that we’ve seen in bills like the one introduced by Senator Rand Paul and Representative Mark Sanford. Expanding Health Savings Accounts, restoring customer choice to the types of coverage available, creating interstate markets, and letting individuals and small businesses band together to buy coverage, are all key tenets of health care reform that Republicans ran on in 2016, and should fight for today. To do anything less will not lower costs or expand choice, and will leave the Republican party’s majority in jeopardy in 2018.”
