LABRADOR REACTS TO CANCELLED AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT VOTE
"It's more important to do it right than to do it it fast."
Washington, D.C. — Rep. Raúl Labrador (ID-01) released the following statement after House Leadership cancelled a scheduled vote on the American Health Care Act.
"The people of Idaho's First District sent me to Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare because of its disastrous impact on America's health care system. I promised my constituents that I would help lead the fight against Obamacare at every opportunity. I would have loved to vote for a bill today that actually repealed and replaced Obamacare. But the American Health Care Act was not that bill. The AHCA would have actually protected Obamacare - trimming it on the margins to keep it alive for a few more years. It was a flawed bill, and its moment has passed."
"We must keep our promise to the American people to end Obamacare. It's more important to do it right than to to it fast."
