Still Not Repeal
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom: Senate Has Not Yet Voted to Repeal Affordable Care Act
PAUL, Minn.—Washington, D.C., was a flurry of fast-moving activity yesterday, as U.S. senators decided to proceed to a debate of the most current health care bill, likely to be changed even further because of permitted amendments.
But Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) says it’s important for Americans to understand that the Senate has not yet voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. CCHF is calling on the U.S. Senate to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act with one concise bill.
“In spite of the vote to move toward another debate phase over government health care in America, the most recent bill is still not a repeal,” said CCHF president and co-founder Twila Brase. “The American people were promised repeal of the ACA. And, despite many Republicans being very vocal about not passing the Affordable Care Act seven years ago, we have no evidence that a repeal is actually in the works. Any federal ‘replacement’ plan will further embed the federal controls, federal infrastructure, federal subsidies and federal dollars of the ACA into federal law. The American people, who elected lawmakers touting a promise of repeal, deserve a vote on full and real repeal.”
