Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (GA-01) released the following statement after the United States Senate failed to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare:

"I have been frustrated with Washington since the first afternoon I arrived here. Unfortunately, that frustration has hit a new high with the Senate's failure to act. The House came together to pass legislation that would make health care more accessible and affordable. Instead of accepting the offer from the House to come together, iron out our differences, and complete our critical work, some in the Senate decided to put up a road block. To say I'm feeling disappointed is an understatement. 

"Some may try to prevent us from resuscitating our failing health care system, but I'm never going to give up. While working in health care for more than thirty years, I saw miracles happen and that is what I'm fighting for. Patients in Georgia, and across the country, deserve better than Obamacare and we must deliver. Inaction or failure is not an option."
