Walden: We Are Going to Get This Right

Feb 14, 2017

Continuing our efforts to repeal Obamacare and deliver relief to patients suffering from the so-called “Affordable Care Act,” House Republicans today spoke on first steps to rebuild our nation’s health care system.

“Health care is very important to all Americans,” said Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), at the House Republican leadership press conference. “We want to get it right, we’ve been taking our time to do that.”

In recent weeks, the committee held hearings looking beyond Obamacare. #SubOversight examined Medicaid expansion, and #SubHealth examined commonsense reforms to modernize Medicaid and insurance reforms to deliver relief to patients.

“We want to give states flexibility, and we want to give people better health care. We are going to accomplish both, in the legislation we’ll be marking up in the near future,” concluded Chairman Walden.
