Rep. Poliquin’s Statement on the American Health Care Act
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) released the following statement on the American Health Care Act, legislation to repeal and replace the rapidly failing ObamaCare health care law and bring relief to tens of thousands of Maine families:
"Tens of thousands of Mainers are suffocating under the spiking ObamaCare monthly premiums, co-pays, and deductibles while other health insurance options continue to shrink. Congress must act to fix this," said Congressman Poliquin. "This new plan will bring much needed health insurance relief to the American People while keeping the promises made to them. This legislation will retain coverage for those with pre-existing health conditions; make sure insurance companies sell health insurance to everyone who wants it; and offer to keep young adults on their parents' policies until age 26.
"This new plan will bring Maine's positive experience with health insurance reform to the national stage. It will remove impediments in the ObamaCare law that prevent insurance companies from offering an array of plans at different prices. We want the young and the old, those in good health and those facing health challenges all to be able to afford the health insurance plans that fit their needs. Our goal is to make sure everyone has access to health care when they need it. I will continue to work hard with Republicans and Democrats to make sure we achieve this."
