Floor Statement of Rep. Henry A. Waxman during debate on the Repeal of Obamacare Act
"This bill will take away health security and cause over 30 million people to lose health coverage over the next decade. That’s more people than the entire populations of New York and Ohio.
Yet here we are again, wasting time that should be spent on improving the economy and putting people to work. Instead, we’re rehashing the same old arguments.......Let's move beyond this vote and show the American people this institution is about more than politics – it's about doing what is right for American families. Let's affirm our commitment to bring health security to all Americans.
Let us reject this Republican bill that would again have the House go on record repealing the law, which has not yet been fully put into place."
