Mike Lee: “This Is Not The Obamacare Repeal Bill We’ve Been Waiting For”

(Before It's News)

That didn’t take long.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has already released a statement, on his website, condemning the newly proposed House GOP replacement bill for Obamacare.

“This is not the Obamacare repeal bill we’ve been waiting for. It is a missed opportunity and a step in the wrong direction,” Sen. Lee said.

“We promised the American people we would drain the swamp and end business as usual in Washington. This bill does not do that. We don’t know how many people would use this new tax credit, we don’t know how much it will cost, and we don’t know if this bill will make health care more affordable for Americans.”

“This is exactly the type of back-room dealing and rushed process that we criticized Democrats for and it is not what we promised the American people.”

“Let’s fulfill our Obamacare repeal promise immediately and then take our time and do reform right. Let’s pass the 2015 repeal bill that Republicans in both houses of Congress voted for and sent to the White House just 15 months ago. Once Obamacare has been properly sent to the dustbin of history then we can begin a deliberative, open, and honest process to reform our nation’s health care system.”

It’s like he took the words right out of my mouth. We were promised repeal. We protested, marched, volunteered and got these people elected. Now is not the time to go weak in the knees. I stand with Mike Lee on this, we the people deserve better.
