Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on Health Care Bill

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. on the American Health Care Act being pulled from the House floor:

"I was prepared today to vote to begin the process of repealing and replacing of Obamacare, which is a promise I made the constituents of Indiana’s Eighth Congressional District. Unfortunately, members of our caucus chose to side with Nancy Pelosi by preventing passage of this first step in that process. That’s incredibly disappointing,” said Bucshon. “Make no mistake, what happened today is on a handful of Republican members; and their constituents will hold them to account for reneging on their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. I would like to thank President Trump and Vice President Pence for supporting this legislation. I would also like to thank Speaker Ryan, Leader McCarthy, and Whip Scalise for their leadership and tireless work in the effort to get this bill across the finish line. I will keep working hard to repeal this disastrous law."

Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. is a physician and Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving his third term representing Indiana's 8th Congressional district. The 8th District of Indiana includes all or parts of Clay, Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Martin, Owen, Parke, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Sullivan, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo, and Warrick counties.
