Press Release

Today, the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act. 

Congressman Moolenaar voted for today’s legislation and kept the promise he made to constituents since 2014 to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law. 

Congressman Moolenaar released the following statement: 

“Today, I voted to keep the promise I made to the voters of my district to rescue Americans from the collapsing health care law that has raised premiums and deductibles and replace it with a better health care system. 

“The American Health Care Act is a patient-centered solution that will give Michigan residents more health care choices that are best for them and their family. It includes protections and $138 billion in support for Americans who have preexisting conditions and it allows young adults under age 26 to remain on their parents’ health care. 

“It also reforms Medicaid so states have resources to continue caring for individuals the program was meant to protect – children, seniors, and the disabled – for decades to come, and it gives states the flexibility to focus on how to best meet the needs of their own residents. 

“This new patient-centered legislation will offer hardworking Michigan residents more health care choices and a stronger safety net that is an improvement over the failed health care law that has limited choices and sent premiums and deductibles soaring across the country.”
