Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after House Republicans introduced the American Health Care Act:
“Families in the Second Congressional District and across the country have seen firsthand how Obamacare has failed—destroying jobs, increasing premiums, spiraling deductibles, and lack of health care choices. We need a real solution that gives everyone access to quality, affordable insurance.
“I am grateful that yesterday, House Republicans introduced legislation that puts American people in charge of their health care – not the federal government. Our bill specifically protects those with pre-existing conditions, allows young adults to remain on their parent’s insurance until they are 26, and provides a stable transition to our system of lower costs and increased options.
“I encourage all of my constituents to go to readthebill.gop to hear how we are simultaneously repealing and replacing Obamacare with a health care system that works.”
