Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, which dismantles some of the most harmful and unpopular provisions of the President’s health care law. It marks the first time since the law’s passage a significant repeal of Obamacare heads to the President’s desk. Additionally, the bill redirects federal funding away from prohibited abortion providers and instead increases resources for community health centers to ensure women continue to have access to quality care. 

“Centralizing decision-making power in Washington at the expense of patients and doctors has led to higher premiums, an increasing tax and regulatory burden, and people losing their doctor and coverage. Far too many Michigan families are paying more and getting less care as a result of the President’s health care law. With this bill, we’ve taken steps to protect innocent life, provide relief from Obamacare, and lay the framework for patient-centered solutions that increase the affordability, accessibility, and quality of health care in our country,” said Walberg.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
