The House majority that passed another bill to repeal Obamacare lacked only three Republican votes Tuesday – and all three representatives had the same reason:
The bill included no replacement for the law that upended the medical insurance system in the United States.
The three were Reps. John Katko of New York, Robert Dold of Illinois and Bruce Poliquin of Maine.
“As I promised to do, I voted against this bill, because we failed to include replacement legislation,” Katko wrote in a Facebook statement.
“The Affordable Care Act is a massive, bureaucratic overreach that has caused CNY families to see their premiums and deductibles increase, while forcing employers to cut back hours and insurance coverage for employees. While the law insures some Americans, it will never achieve its stated goals.”
Dold and Poliquin agreed.
“Had Congress voted for the full repeal of ObamaCare two years ago, families and small businesses would have been able to adjust to the change,” Poliquin wrote on Facebook. “Now, however, more than 60,000 Mainers have invested their time and energy in choosing health care plans that work for their families.
“Any replacement law must also allow moms and dads to purchase health insurance plans that they can afford, and to choose the doctors and hospitals that best fit their family health care needs.”
The bill, H.R. 596, passed the House 239 to 186.
