Congressman Lucas Votes to Repeal Obamacare

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today joined his colleagues in the House of Representatives by voting in favor of H.R. 45, which fully repeals President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The legislation passed the United States House of Representatives today with a 229 to 195 vote.

“Today, I voted for the third time to fully repeal Obamacare,” said Lucas. “I have voted over 30 times to defund the flawed law, and I will continue to vote for measures that will dismantle the Affordable Care Act. My constituents in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District and many other Americans have unanimously voiced their opposition to Obamacare. The law clearly isn’t working. Families have already seen a major increase in health care premiums, and the additional taxes and mandates continue to place an extra layer of burden on hard-working Americans.

“Many Oklahomans are concerned about the negative effects that will occur when the law is fully implemented in January 2014. I too share these concerns. As the Congressman representing the Third District, I promise I will continue working to repeal and replace Obamacare with real health care reforms that will allow families to choose a health care plan that best fits their needs. Government run health care is the last thing Americans need.”
