Washington, DC –  Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) joined his colleagues in voting for the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to take the first step in repairing the damages of the Obamacare system.  On his decision to vote in favor of the AHCA, Congressman Kinzinger released the following statement:  

“We cannot wait any longer to bring relief to the American people suffering under Obamacare. In Illinois, premiums have gone up more than 40%. Across the country, outrageous deductibles and fewer provider choices are commonplace under Obamacare.

The so-called ‘Affordable Care’ Act, Obamacare, has had a damaging effect on patient care, insurance coverage and our economy. Today I voted to repeal and replace Obamacare, just as the American people asked for on Election Day.  The AHCA puts patients back in charge of their own healthcare, and includes several layers of protection for individuals with pre-existing conditions.

“This legislation has several steps to go before it becomes law and we have many improvements to make. But today, I acted to move this healthcare reform forward to make real progress for my constituents and our country.”
