Smith Votes for Budget Resolution to Begin Obamacare Repeal Process
Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement today after voting in favor of the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget Resolution, which contains language establishing the process for repealing the Affordable Care Act.
“This is an important first step toward repealing Obamacare,” Smith said. “We still have a lot of work to do, but I am glad to help start the process of bringing relief to Nebraskans and people across the country facing higher costs and fewer choices under this unworkable law. It is time for new, patient-centered health care policy, and I will work closely with my fellow Members of Congress and the Trump administration to make sure repeal and replace is done right.”
