Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after voting to repeal and replace Obamacare to make America’s health care system patient-centered, choice-driven, and affordable:

“For seven years, Americans have lived through the reality that government bureaucracy – with its massive rules and regulations – is not the answer to ensuring Americans have access to quality health care. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) promised affordable health insurance and access to health care for everyone, but the result has been the exact opposite. Ronald Reagan best described the dangers of government bureaucracy as, ‘In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.’

“Today the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which begins the process of dismantling the bureaucratic red-tape that has forced premiums to skyrocket and made deductibles so high that many Americans found their insurance so costly it was unusable. This bill in itself doesn’t fix the entire problem, but it begins the process of fixing our broken health care system.”
