Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mimi Walters (CA-45) today released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act.
Said Rep. Mimi Walters, “Across my district and throughout California, small businesses and families are hurting from the effects of Obamacare – individuals are facing high premiums, businesses are dealing with costly regulations and federal overreach, and taxpayers are burdened with more excessive federal spending. Today’s legislation would rip out the most harmful provisions of Obamacare, including: the Employer Mandate, the Individual mandate, the Medical Device Tax, and the ‘Cadillac Tax’ among others. Furthermore, it reduces the deficit by $130 billion over 10 years and represents Congress’ best chance at getting a bill on the President’s desk that will stop this harmful law. I will continue to work with my colleagues to dismantle this ineffective and overly-burdensome law and replace it with common-sense, patient-centered solutions.”
Walters represents California’s 45th District and sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure and Judiciary Committees.
