Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on House Passing Obamacare Repeal Resolution
Congressman Dan Donovan (NY-11) released the following statement regarding his support for, and House passage of, S. Con. Res. 3, which clears the way for repealing Obamacare:
“Obamacare has burdened hardworking Americans with soaring premiums and deductibles, canceled policies, and limited choices. Today’s resolution is the first step in bringing relief to millions of families impacted by our broken healthcare system. I promise to work with my colleagues – on both sides of the aisle – to deliver a real solution that provides quality and affordable healthcare. As we move forward, you can rest assured that there will be a stable transition period to ensure continuous access to health coverage, while the replacement plan is instituted. New Yorkers and all Americans deserve better, and I look forward to putting in place reforms that will create a working and stable healthcare system.”
Following today’s vote, Congress will begin to working on a reconciliation bill that provides the budget framework necessary to repealing and replacing Obamacare.
