Three Steps the American People Want in Obamacare Repeal

Doug Sachtleben - March 30th, 2017

“We’re glad to see Speaker Ryan is ready to work with conservatives to improve Obamacare repeal, and to bring back competition and lower health insurance costs.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement after House Speaker Paul Ryan said he was open to “improvements” to the health care bill:

“We are glad to see Speaker Paul Ryan is ready to work with conservatives to improve Obamacare repeal, and to bring back competition and lower health insurance costs, just as President Trump promised. To do that, the repeal effort needs to include these core principles that will drive down the cost of health insurance:

  • Interstate competition in the House or Senate version
  • The rollback of more costly Obamacare insurance regulations, which will lead to savings in federal spending on tax credits
  • Handling pre-existing conditions with state high-risk pools

“If House leadership remains stuck on an Obamacare bill that does not deal with these issues, Republicans will pay the price in 2018 when health care costs are continuing to spike upward,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Polls show that the American people overwhelmingly rejected last week’s flawed House bill. House conservatives are working to fix it, and Speaker Ryan needs to ensure that the House bill is focused on the priorities of the American people.”

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.
