Congressman Farenthold’s Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order

By October 12, 2017 Press Releases No Comments


“Repealing and replacing Obamacare remains as one of my top priorities. While the House passed legislation to repeal Obamacare, it failed in the Senate. In response, President Trump issued an executive order today that will provide Americans with more affordable health care choices, increase competition and push back at healthcare monopolies. It also provides alternatives to Obamacare plans by allowing employers in the same line of business anywhere in the country to join together to offer health insurance coverage to their employees. I applaud President Trump for this important step in helping Americans who are suffering under Obamcare’s burdensome regulations. I will continue working to permanently repeal and replace Obamacare.”
