Christian Coalition of America Strongly Supports the Graham-Cassidy-Johnson-Heller Obamacare Repeal Legislation
Christian Coalition of America commends Senators Lindsey Graham, R-SC; Bill Cassidy, M.D., R-LA; Ron Johnson, M.D., R-WI; and Dean Heller, R-NV for introducing their Obamacare Repeal/Replace legislation.
Roberta Combs, President and CEO, said: “Christian Coalition of America, with millions of supporters, strongly supports the Graham-Cassidy-Johnson-Heller Obamacare Repeal/Replace legislation which will fulfill a major Republican campaign promise once President Donald Trump signs it into law which he has promised to do. The bill has major tax cuts as it eliminates the onerous individual and employer mandates. It also returns funding to the 50 states as well as defunding Planned Parenthood."
As WND.com reported yesterday: The GOP-controlled Senate has just 15 days to repeal and replace Obamacare without Democratic support. Republicans have sought to pass a health-care bill through the budget reconciliation process, which requires only 51 votes to advance a bill to a final vote. But the budget resolution passed earlier this year gave Republicans reconciliation privileges only until the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30.
“…The Graham-Cassidy repeal-and-replace bill would reapply the principle contained in the Hyde Amendment that abortion is not health care and should not be subsidized.
The measure essentially would provide states authority to design their own health-insurance systems. It would keep some of Obamacare’s regulations and taxes in place but redirect taxpayer funding away from organizations that provide abortions, such as Planned Parenthood.
It would also eliminate Obamacare mandates requiring most Americans to have some kind of health insurance or face a fine, as well as the requirement that forces large employers to offer health coverage to workers or pay a penalty.”
