Andrew Roth - January 11th, 2017
KEY VOTE ALERT
“YES” on the Obamacare Repeal Resolution (S.Con.Res. 3)
The Club for Growth urges all members of Congress to support the Obamacare Repeal Resolution (S.Con.Res. 3), which also includes the FY17 budget resolution. A vote is expected in both chambers this week. The vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2017 Congressional Scorecard.
This proposal would be the first step in repealing the disastrous Obamacare program. It would establish reconciliation instructions for committees to report language that would effectively gut the big-government healthcare law. We have the full expectation that this language will be considered in the first quarter of the year, and that it will abolish ALL of Obamacare’s taxes. We also expect that a replacement plan will be considered within two years, contrary to the longer term plans that have been discussed in the media.
Congress still has a lot of work to do in order to end Obamacare and replace it with a market-driven, pro-growth healthcare insurance plan, but passing this resolution is the necessary first step. We strongly urge passage.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
