Carter Statement on the American Health Care Act
Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (GA-01) released the following statement about the American Health Care Act today:
"I have been a strong supporter of the American Health Care Act because Americans cannot continue living with the Obamacare train wreck. Since it was signed into law, I have watched Obamacare crush the health care system that I worked in for more than thirty years. Thanks to this failed experiment, premiums and health care costs have skyrocketed, choice has been eliminated, and the dire situation is only getting worse. It is not acceptable to sit idly by and not take action.
"While I was hoping for the success of the AHCA today, the fight continues. We are on a rescue mission to resuscitate our health care system and I will not stop fighting until this mission is completed. I will keep working until patients are no longer forced to live under Washington's one-size-fits-all health care mandates and taxes. I want to thank Speaker Paul Ryan for his strong leadership on this bill and issue. Now, we move forward."
