WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement after meeting with President Trump at the White House to discuss the American Health Care Act (AHCA):

House Republicans are answering President Trump’s call to action to repeal and replace Obamacare. We are tackling health care in three phases, starting with our reconciliation recommendations, which Health and Human Secretary Price supports (see official letter here).

We are transferring power from Washington back to the American people. We dismantle Obamacare’s damaging taxes and mandates so states can deliver quality, affordable options based on what their patient populations need, and workers and families can have the freedom and flexibility to make their own health care choices.We nearly double Health Saving Account (HSA) contributions that can be made, and also block federal funds from going to abortion providers.

I’m proud to be moving this important legislation forward with my colleagues and work with President Trump and Secretary Price to deliver on our promises to provide all Americans with access to affordable, quality healthcare.
