Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Ken Buck voted for a new direction in healthcare and to defund Planned Parenthood by supporting H.R. 3762, the reconciliation bill. The bill repeals major portions of Obamacare, including premium subsidies, tax credits, Medicaid expansion, individual and employer mandates, reinsurance programs, and risk corridors. The unpopular medical device and health insurance tax will also be repealed. Additionally, the legislation ends taxpayer support of all elective abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood. These funds are instead redirected to community health centers.
“We promised America that we’d repeal Obamacare,” Congressman Buck stated. “Americans deserve better, and I believe there are many good market-oriented alternatives.”
“This legislation will also defund elective abortion providers,” Congressman Buck continued. “President Obama will have to decide whether or not to continue to use tax dollars to subsidize the abortion of unborn children.”
The reconciliation bill will now go to President Obama for his consideration.
