WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of the Obamacare repeal resolution, which lays the groundwork for full repeal of this failed law.
“Passing the Obamacare repeal resolution means the Republican-led Senate has begun delivering on the promises we made to the American people,” said Thune. “The current Obamacare situation is unsustainable. Premiums are soaring, insurance markets are collapsing, and patients’ choices are dwindling. With this resolution, we have put the necessary tools in place to repeal Obamacare and replace it with personalized, patient-centered health care that is affordable for every American.
