Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11) this afternoon voted for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
“Obamacare is collapsing across the country and failing to make health care affordable for New Jersey families facing skyrocketing premiums, soaring deductibles, and fewer choices,” the veteran Republican congressman said. “So doing nothing is not an option!”
“The earlier version of the House-proposed American Health Care Act was unacceptable to me,” explained Frelingthuysen, who in the aftermath of the first , unsuccessful repeal vote found himself targeted by at least one group on the right seeking the elimination of Obamacare. “Today, I want to reassure New Jersey families that this legislation protects those with pre-existing conditions and restores essential health benefits.
“I voted to move this bill to the U.S. Senate, which will have the opportunity to improve this legislation significantly.”
