Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (GA-01), a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, released the following statement today after legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare was approved by the Committee:

“Approval of this legislation in the Committee today is a big win in the fight to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a patient-centered health care system with the choice and control needed to empower patients. The health care system I worked in for more than thirty years is being crushed under the weight of Obamacare. We cannot sit and watch the greatest health care system in the world crumble before our eyes because of a bad law and one-size-fits-all Washington mandates. I refuse to let that happen and that is why I voted in support of this legislation today. It will finally provide relief from Obamacare while paving the way for a health care system that is accessible and affordable. 

"While this is a strong first step, I'm committed it's not the last. We still have a long way to go and we will continue this work until all Americans are able to access the health care they need and deserve."
