“Today’s budget reconciliation package is an important first step in building a truly patient-centered healthcare system that lowers the costs of care, expands access to providers, puts consumers in control, and respects our doctors and healthcare professionals. Unlike Obamacare, our reform legislation will not be written by health insurance companies, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies or other special interests. Instead it will be written for American families who need and deserve quality healthcare.”

Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement regarding his vote to begin the process of reforming the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare:

“Over the last several years, many Americans have learned the hard way that having an insurance policy is not the same as having access to quality healthcare. While Obamacare had some positive reforms, including coverage for preexisting conditions and allowing children to remain on their parents’ plans longer, this law is falling apart. My office has received many complaints over the last two years about our current healthcare system, and I have no doubt that all Americans - especially the most vulnerable - deserve better. Quite simply, the Affordable Care Act has broken its promise to lower costs and offer more and better choices to the American people.

“Today’s budget reconciliation package is an important first step in building a truly patient-centered healthcare system that lowers the costs of care, expands access to providers, puts consumers in control, and respects our doctors and healthcare professionals. Unlike Obamacare, our reform legislation will not be written by health insurance companies, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies or other special interests. Instead it will be written for American families who need and deserve quality healthcare.”

In order to hear first-hand from those affected, Curbelo has created a form for his constituents to share their Obamacare stories on his website here. Constituents are encouraged to use the form to share their experiences with Obamacare coverage to help shape the new reforms.

Today’s S. Con. Res. 3, FY2017 Budget, passed 227-198.
