Andrew Roth - July 19th, 2017
The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote on the motion to proceed that would allow the Senate to vote to largely repeal Obamacare, similar to what they did in 2015 with the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act (H.R. 3762). This procedural vote is expected early next week. The vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2017 Congressional Scorecard.
The Republican Party has promised voters for seven years to repeal Obamacare. And they have been rewarded on Election Day, in part, because of that promise. It is finally time to deliver on their pledge. If Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allows the first amendment for consideration to be identical, or nearly similar to the 2015 repeal bill – he has stated he will –then failure to pass such a motion to proceed would be tantamount to supporting Obamacare.
Obamacare is crippling our economy and restricting our freedom. It needs to be repealed immediately.
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.
