WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Chris Stewart voted Tuesday to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. This bill to repeal Obamacare passed the House 239 to 186 and now moves to the Senate.
“Of all the laws past in recent years, I hear most about the destructive impact of Obamacare,” Stewart said. “Its original intent was to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, but it has done the exact opposite in Utah – increasing healthcare premiums, and making doctors and plans less accessible. I’m proud to have voted to repeal Obamacare today. Now we must replace it with reforms that allow Americans to make their own healthcare choices, actually making it more affordable and accessible.”
Stewart delivered a speech on the House Floor about this destructive law.
