WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) released the following statement after voting for the American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628):
“While it falls short of Republican campaign promises and the Better Way agenda, the passage of the AHCA marks an important step forward to fixing our broken health care economy. Reforms to Medicaid, work requirements for able-bodied adults, and defunding Planned Parenthood are no small victories. Americans are actively suffering under Obamacare and this bill brings much-needed and long-promised relief.
“House Republicans must remember that the AHCA is just the first step. The AHCA deals with the individual market; it does not directly address the way most Americans access health care coverage. We must continue pushing to help markets rein in costs and expand affordable choices across the nation, while protecting meaningful coverage. Far more needs to be done, and we must not rest until we have accomplished the mission.”
