Health Care

Washington, DCWASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) today joined a majority in the House of Representatives in passing H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, which will repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. Congressman Frank Lucas voted in favor of this legislation. It passed the House with a 245 to 189 vote.

“By having a straight up-or-down vote on repealing Obamacare, we have kept our promise to the American people and our commitment to real health reform,” stated Lucas. “This was a promise I made to my constituents after hearing their concern with the trillion dollar government takeover of health care during the 50 town hall meetings I held last year.”

“It is time to sit down and start over with reforms that don’t scare employers from hiring, reforms that allow the American people to have a choice in their health care, and save rather than cost the people of Oklahoma money.”
