Our healthcare system was in need of reform before Obamacare was passed into law. However, instead of fixing our healthcare system, President Obama’s health plan increased costs, introduced greater confusion into the marketplace and placed an excessive amount of power in the hands of the federal government.
We must not only repeal Obamacare but replace it with free market solutions empowering our citizens. This includes putting rational policies into place. Instituting policies that increase market competition will drive down healthcare costs and provide the American people a better healthcare system.
During my time in Congress I have worked to pass healthcare legislation encouraging competition and patient choice. I am committed to lowering healthcare costs and increasing access to patient care. Rest assured I will continue to support legislation that defunds, repeals and ultimately replaces our current healthcare system with free market solutions creating affordable healthcare for all citizens.

The following statement can be attributed to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann:
“Obamacare is a terrible law and has put further stress on our already fragile healthcare system,” said Fleischmann. “When the American Healthcare Act was introduced I made it clear that the legislation was not perfect, but was instead a step in the right direction. Although the bill has been pulled, I remain committed to repealing Obamacare and focusing on patient-centered reforms.”
