Today I was prepared to govern on behalf of my constituents who have been telling me for the last four years that Obamacare is not working. I was proud to be part of the negotiations with President Trump and my colleagues that allowed this bill to address the concerns I have heard from many of my constituents over the years, issues expressed by hospitals, community health centers, and others, but health care is a complicated issue. It will take all of us willing to set politics aside and look beyond the next election to make it work for those struggling to pay their health care bill each month. I’m disappointed in my Democrat colleagues in the House and Senate who refuse to be part of the discussion on fixing a law that many in their own party have said is not working. I have heard a lot of talk about the need to fix problems like 18 of the 23 Obamacare insurance co-ops failing, leaving millions without insurance, premium costs rising upwards of 55 percent in Illinois, and deductibles that leave people with insurance they can’t afford to use, but no solutions. When President Obama was in office, I reached across the aisle multiple times to author and support legislation to improve Obamacare but the fact is, this law is collapsing so now I expect my Democrat colleagues to do the same and work with us. They have a choice: either be part of the solution or watch as millions more lose their coverage and prices continue to increase for their constituents. At the same time, I’m disappointed in many of my Republican colleagues for failing to support a good bill backed by President Trump and many others. I came here to govern and I’m disappointed that we came up short. I have always said I will do whatever necessary to fix our broken health care system and will continue to do that.

Having a call with my health care advisory board, which includes doctors, nurses, hospitals, community health centers, and others, on this very important vote today to finally repeal Obamacare, which is collapsing, and replace it with the American Health Care Act.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Political Science majors were in DC this week learning more about Congress. Great to meet with young people involved in the process and maybe even some future members of Congress!
