Huelskamp Votes to Repeal Obamacare and Defund Planned Parenthood
WASHINGTON – Today Congressman Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) voted for H.R. 3762, Restoring American's Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. The bill, which passed in the House 240 to 181, would repeal Obamacare funding, eliminate individual and employer mandates, and very importantly, stop taxpaying funding of mega abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Huelskamp released the following statement on the legislation:
"Putting this bill on Obama’s desk is five years overdue. It is time to hold this President responsible not only for his failed, unpopular D.C. takeover of Americans’ health care system, but also gruesome Planned Parenthood. An organization that is plagued with scandal and profits from the barbaric harvesting and sale of baby body parts should not receive a dime in federal funding.
“Americans have felt the wrath of Obamacare for far too long. It’s bad, broken policy that hurts families and small businesses. This is an important first step today; it’s my hope that this year we continue our progress in doing away with the failed Obama initiative and work toward a patient-centered replacement.”
