Jan 6, 2016 by AFP

ARLINGTON, VA — The nation’s largest conservative grassroots organization and the leading long-time opponent Obamacare, Americans for Prosperity, applauds Congress for passing legislation. On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted 240-to-181 to approve a budget reconciliation package that will repeal or delay major provisions in the President’s healthcare law.

Americans for Prosperity Vice President of Government Affairs Brent Gardner issued the following statement:

“American households and small businesses across the country continue to struggle under Obamacare, and this package includes meaningful changes with bipartisan support that will provide relief from some of its most harmful provisions. While Americans for Prosperity remains committed to full repeal of Obamacare, we applaud this package because it includes provisions that AFP has long called for, such as repealing the employer mandates and repealing many of its harmful taxes. Politicians campaigned on promises to oppose Obamacare, and it’s good to see the 240 lawmakers who voted in support of this package put their words into action.”
