McCaul on Reconciliation Act: “an across the board victory for the American people" 

WASHINGTON, DC– Today following the House of Representatives passage of H.R. 3762, Restoring American's Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) made the following statement:

McCaul: "Today’s reconciliation vote is an across the board victory for the American people and it has been a long time coming. Republicans in Congress have been listening to our constituents and we have overcome the obstructionist tactics employed by Democrats. The result; for the first time we have sent to the president’s desk legislation that repeals the foundations of Obamacare including its multi-billion dollar slush fund, defunds Planned Parenthood, and cuts the deficit over half a trillion dollars. It is time for the president to put aside his veto threats, do the right thing, and sign this bill that ends the individual and employer mandates in Obamacare and a vast majority of its burdensome taxes, protects the unborn, and begins to put us back on a path to fiscal stability."
