Latta Votes to Repeal Obamacare, Strengthen Health Care for American Families

WASHINGTON, D.C.  Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after voting to pass H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which repeals Obamacare and replaces it with patient-centered heath care.

 

“It’s very evident that Obamacare is failing the American people, and its problems continue to grow. Just yesterday, more than 70,000 Iowans found out they might not have a single insurer to purchase insurance from on their exchanges next year. Last year, more than 5.5 million people decided to pay an IRS penalty instead of purchasing insurance they can’t afford. The promises of Obamacare have been thoroughly broken, and the problems it has foisted on hardworking families can’t be ignored. Constituents in my district have told me about skyrocketing premiums, difficultly using their insurance, and the lack of choices they face thanks to Obamacare. Out of the 14 counties I represent, four are facing a reality where there won’t be a single insurer available on the exchanges, and another five counties will most likely only have one insurer available.

 

“The AHCA keeps in place protections for pre-existing conditions while giving states more flexibility to improve their health care marketplaces and bring down the cost of insurance. At the same time, the bill repeals Obamacare’s burdensome mandates and costly taxes that hurt Ohio families and small businesses, and it establishes a Patient and State Stability Fund that will provide funding to states so they can implement policies that work best for their citizens. The legislation also makes needed reforms to the Medicaid program while ensuring a stable transition during the implementation of the AHCA.

 

“Our health care system desperately needs rescuing from the disaster that is Obamacare, and that’s why I voted to pass the American Health Care Act and provide much needed relief for Ohioans.”

 

In addition to passing the American Health Care Act, Congressman Latta also voted to pass H.R. 2192, legislation that ensures that Members of Congress and congressional staff will be subject to the AHCA when it passes the Senate and is signed into law. Due to procedural issues, that legislation had to be passed as a stand-alone bill.

  1. Latta has lost touch with his constituents and has no idea what is going on in the real world. They voted themselves exempt because they know how bad it is. If our elected officials had to work as many hours as we do, use their health plan, and actually live like the rest of us things would change. But on the other hand, I am not sure he would qualify as his pre-existing condition would be the silver spoon that has been lodged in his mouth since day one.

  2. It really comes down to actual cost. By that I mean we all should try to live within our means through actual cost and spending…Not forecasted revenues and basing spending on what might be available based on assumed collections of funds(taxes). There is not a system in existence today that will make 100% of the people happy. Personal experiences are just that nothing more(no disrespect to anyone).But in a nation of over 330 million people, we all need to put our big person pants on like our grandparents did, stop looking for what we can get out of our neighbor, and live on what we can actually provide for our house. Pick up the good book and apply it.
