GOP Healthcare Bill Pulled

Congressman Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) says  GOP leaders Friday made the right call when they pulled the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.   The legislation was withdrawn when it became clear it did not have the votes to pass the House.   Palmer, who agreed to support the measure after Medicaid reforms were added, issued the following statement:

“After hearing from me and many of my colleagues the Republican leadership decided not to hold the vote on the American Health Care Act. I believe pulling the bill from the House floor was the right call. The American people have suffered for the last 7 years under Obamacare, and I know we can provide them a better solution that will put healthcare decisions back in their hands, not in the hands of the Federal Government. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress and President Trump to do just that. Working together we can still pass a bill that allows Americans to access the doctors they want, decide the coverage they need, and lower their healthcare expenses.”
