Corker Votes to Dismantle President Obama’s Health Care Law

Corker-020907-18332- 0025WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today voted for the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015 (H.R. 3762), legislation that would dismantle the president’s health care law and build a bridge to a better health care system for hardworking families across the country.

“The president’s health care law was sold to Tennesseans as a way to bring down health care costs and provide certainty to individuals and companies across the nation, yet it has done just the opposite,” said Corker. “Year after year, we have seen double digit increases in the cost of plans, small businesses grappling with unreasonable mandates, and health insurance providers threatening to leave the marketplace or shutting down completely due to upside down profit expectations. The simple fact is that this law has not delivered the results that were promised. Americans want an open health care marketplace that provides far greater choice and affordable plans that meet their actual needs so companies can openly and effectively compete for their business.”
