Billy Long on Obamacare vote: I worked the will of Southwest Missourians
U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement after the House passed legislation repealing Obamacare:
"Nearly every day, I hear from constituents with skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, with reduced work hours or who have had to take the tax penalty because the price does not fit the family budget. They are testaments to how theAffordable Care Act is anything but 'affordable'.
"Today, I again worked the will of Southwest Missourians with a vote to repeal Obamacare. My House colleagues and I will work on patient-centered health care reform without onerous taxes that hinder economic growth and freedom-eroding mandates on the American people."
