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.”

The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
