Shelby: Senate Lays Groundwork to Give Americans Relief from Obamacare

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released a statement following Senate passage of the budget reconciliation measure, which lays the groundwork necessary to give Americans relief from Obamacare:

“After more than six years since the enactment of the massive government takeover of health care, there is no doubt that Obamacare is broken beyond repair.  I have heard from thousands of Alabamians about the harmful impacts of Obamacare on their health care, their family, their job, and their wallet. 

“The American people have entrusted Republicans with a unified government and they demand, expect, and deserve results.  I am pleased that our first major act in the 115th Congress was to pave the way towards repealing and replacing this failed law with patient-centered health care reforms.”
