WASHINGTON – An Arkansas U.S. Senator said Tuesday the people he represents do not want the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as “Obamacare,” to remain law.
U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement Tuesday after voting to move forward on legislation to repeal the ACA:
“Arkansans have been calling for a repeal ever since Obamacare was forced upon them,” Boozman claimed. “Today, we moved closer to making that a reality. Obamacare is not sustainable and preserving the status quo is not an option.”
Boozman acknowledged the repeal was far from certain.
“This is just the first step,” Boozman said in a release. “While much work remains to be done, this vote signals to the American people that we remain committed to repairing our health care system by putting into place a system that ensures access to affordable, quality care for every American.”
