Statement of Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen on Affordable Care Act replacement

After a meeting with the President and House members, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) provided the following update to constituents interested in ongoing work on a replacement to the Affordable Care Act:

“The reality is that Obamacare is failing to make health care affordable and is crumbling, with skyrocketing premiums, soaring deductibles, and fewer choices for patients and families.  The law is also wreaking havoc on the job market, especially for small businesses. We must make positive changes - because doing nothing is not an option!

“As I have stated, the current legislative proposal is not perfect.  But it is moving in the right direction to provide quality, affordable health insurance for all Americans.

“The legislative process is continuing.  I am actively reviewing the latest changes to the bill and expect continued improvements as it moves forward.”
