Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, critical legislation that repeals Obamacare and defunds Planned Parenthood:

“Today is an historic day for conservatives. For the first time ever, we will finally get a bill that repeals Obamacare to the President’s desk—forcing him to defend his broken healthcare law that cut services, raised premiums, and destroyed jobs for hardworking families across America. By repealing and replacing Obamacare with a patient-centered solution, we will protect jobs and cut the federal deficit by half a trillion dollars over the next decade. Additionally, this bill makes a strong stand for the sanctity of life—defunding Planned Parenthood and preventing taxpayer dollars from supporting the abortion industry.

“I look forward to working to put conservative legislation on the President’s desk throughout the remainder of the 114th Congress and force the President to defend his failed legacy of big government to the American people.”
