Washington, DC - Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement after voting to repeal President Obama’s health care legislation:

“Health care affects every single American. That is why today’s vote to repeal the health care law is so important, and why I am working with my colleagues to replace the legislation with alternatives that will reduce costs, make sure people can get the care they need, reform our tort system and restore the relationship between doctors and patients. These are the priorities that Texans expect in their health care.”  

“Today’s vote is a direct result of millions of Americans participating in our democratic process.  For a year and a half I have heard from thousands of my constituents who don’t want the government interfering in their health care decisions. Through an open and transparent process, we will begin to correct this bad experiment with reform.”
