Hatch Applauds House Action on Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) issued the following statement after legislation repealing Obamacare through the budget reconciliation process cleared Congress and was sent to the President to be signed into law: 

“Today, Congress let the will of the American people be heard and sent an Obamacare repeal bill to the President’s desk. Higher premiums, higher taxes, less opportunity and diminished access to care is not what this administration promised and is exactly why Americans continue to oppose this law.  With this legislation, the President has a real opportunity to finally put an end to the flawed policies that have crippled household budgets and limited patient access to quality care and instead work with Republicans to implement patient-centered reforms to effectively address rising costs and increase choice for more Americans.”
