WASHINGTON, D.C. - Alaskan Congressman Don Young voted this afternoon in favor of H.R. 45, to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care Education and Reconciliation Act of 2010.
“Today marks the 37th time since 2011 that Congress has voted to repeal all or parts of this awful piece of legislation, which I have called the worst bill to ever come across my desk during my four decades in Congress. While I agree that health care should be more accessible to all Alaskans, the Affordable Care Act is simply not the answer,” Rep. Young said. “The three major components needed for true health reform: accessibility, affordability, and portability are nowhere to be found in this behemoth of a bill. Instead it is full of job killing regulations that when fully implemented will put additional strain on hardworking small businesses across the country. I continue to work with my House colleagues to find ways to fix our broken health care system, but letting Obamacare take full effect in 2014 is no way to do it.”
