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.”
