Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) Release Statement Regarding Passage of The American Health Care Act

WASHINGTON D.C. –Today, Congressman Alex X. Mooney released the following statement regarding the passage of The American Health Care Act.

“Today, I was proud to vote for the American Health Care Act. I pledged to voters in the Second District that I would vote to repeal and replace Obamacare and today I fulfilled that pledge. 

Obamacare is collapsing as insurance companies abandon the healthcare exchanges and insurance premiums continue to rise, hurting those who can least afford it.  The American Health Care Act will repeal Obamacare once-and for-all and replace it with free-market solutions that will increase access to care and lower costs for all West Virginians.

The American Health Care Act will get government out of the way and put patients back in charge of their healthcare decisions. I will continue to fight for quality and affordable health care for all West Virginians. I look forward to continuing to work with President Donald Trump on other important issues such as tax reform, protecting the coal industry, protecting Social Security and standing up for our seniors,” said Rep. Alex Mooney.

Alex X. Mooney represents West Virginia’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
