Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) released the following statement today after voting for passage of the American Health Care Act, a bill to set into motion the repeal of Obamacare and restore choice and affordability in our country’s health care market.

“Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight,” said Congressman Lucas. “Several states, including Oklahoma, are down to only one insurance provider on their state exchange and health premiums continue to rise at a staggering rate.”

“I support the American Health Care Act because it makes good on our promise to repeal Obamacare and restore our country’s health insurance market. Moving from Obamacare’s government-run bureaucracy to a patient-centered system means people will have the flexibility to choose the plan that meets their needs. And for the millions of Americans who were forced off their health plans through no fault of their own, this legislation paves the way for comprehensive and affordable health insurance options.”

“Today’s vote is an important step toward getting rid of Obamacare’s mandates, excessive taxes, and regulatory hurdles so that Americans can begin to access quality health care at a reasonable price.”
