U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement regarding his vote to support S. Con. Res. 3, which sets up the process to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“Canceled policies, difficulties in identifying new plans, massive premium increases, sky-high deductibles and limited options for doctors — the new normal for many American families under Obamacare. This vote gives us the opportunity to begin repairing the damage. I will work with my colleagues — Republicans and Democrats alike — to swiftly come together, offer real reforms to lower costs and improve the quality of healthcare, and ensure there is no lapse in care. Americans deserve freedom of choice and should have access to truly affordable, quality healthcare.”

Sen. Moran has repeatedly offered policy recommendations during his time in Congress to improve our healthcare system.

The Obamacare repeal resolution will now be taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives. Should it be passed, a future vote to repeal Obamacare altogether will succeed with a simple majority in both chambers.
