The Obamacare Repeal Pledge that Conservatives Are Fighting For

Doug Sachtleben - March 28th, 2017

In January 2016, House Speaker Paul Ryan criticized then-President Obama for vetoing the Obamacare repeal passed by the House and Senate, and then said, “We have shown now that there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the Senate. So, next year if we’re sending this bill to a Republican president, it will get signed into law. Obamacare will be gone.”

This was the pledge that should be the baseline of any current Obamacare repeal effort.

Club for Growth Thanks Reps Sanford, Brat, & Palmer for Opposing RyanCare

Doug Sachtleben - March 16th, 2017

“It makes no sense for Speaker Ryan and Chairman Diane Black to force GOP lawmakers to walk the plank on a bill that they’ve already admitted needs to be changed.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement after Representatives Mark Sanford (SC-01), Dave Brat (VA-07), and Gary Palmer (AL-06) voted against RyanCare in the House Budget Committee:

“It makes no sense for Speaker Ryan and Chairman Diane Black to force GOP lawmakers to walk the plank and vote for a bad bill that they’ve already admitted needs to be changed,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Today’s vote shows why we need Congressmen Sanford, Brat, and Palmer on the Budget Committee. Their principled courage will be vital as the committee votes to pass President Trump’s fiscally-conservative spending cuts.”

The Club for Growth opposes RyanCare because it fails to fully and immediately repeal Obamacare and leaves out free-market reforms. RyanCare will put a Republican seal of approval on Obamacare and will drive up premium prices, pushing health care reform in exactly the opposite direction from what the GOP campaigned on.

Instead of pushing it through committees, Speaker Ryan should give the House a vote on the 2015 Obamacare repeal bill, and incorporate free-market reforms like interstate competition that will actually give consumers choice and lower prices.
