Sanford Statement on Health Care Bill
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Representative Mark Sanford issued the following statement after the vote on the American Health Care Act was pulled from the House floor:
“House leadership, the President, and the White House team deserve credit for their efforts to advance this bill. I have found that seeming stopping points can ultimately prove to be beginning points in life and the things that we work on. Accordingly, I believe today’s action will prove to be the catalyst that will bring conservative and moderate Republicans together with Democrats and Independents in forging a repeal and replace to the Affordable Care Act. I certainly join with other conservatives in committing to do so.
“What the ACA has done to participants in the individual healthcare marketplace continues to be a great problem for many Americans, and therefore, I believe this bill will come back to the floor in a way that bridges philosophical gaps and stays true to the deliberative process so vital in producing good legislation.”
