RNC Chairman Priebus Statement On The House Vote To Repeal Obamacare

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement regarding the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote to repeal Obamacare:
“It’s hard to see how anyone can defend a piece of legislation that destroys jobs and was enacted despite the objections of the American people. President Obama’s government takeover of healthcare is a serious impediment to job creation and does nothing to control the rising cost of health coverage or improve care. Today’s vote to repeal this law is not only a vote to curb out of control government spending and grow our economy but also a vote to begin real healthcare reform that actually provides increased access and better quality care for patients. The American people have made it clear that they want their government to focus on job creation and deficit reduction, so it is my hope that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will give them a full hearing by bringing this legislation before the full Senate for an up or down vote.”
