Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today joined his colleagues in the House of Representatives in voting for passage of H.R. 6079, the Repeal of Obamacare Act. This legislation repeals the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act of 2010, and it was passed in the House today with a 244 to 185 vote.

“I am pleased this legislation to repeal the president’s health care law passed the House today,” said Lucas. “This vote reassures my constituents in the Third District of Oklahoma that we remain committed to real health care reform and we will not stand for the president’s flawed law.

“Americans have spoken loud and clear in opposition to Obamacare, which drives up health care costs. I will continue to work with leaders of Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with commonsense reforms that will lower the cost of health care, and allow patients the right to choose a plan that best fits their needs.”
