Griffith Statement on Obamacare Tax Repeal

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 748, the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act:

“After crying foul for years whenever Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare or part of it, Democrats today put forward their own repeal of some of Obamacare’s taxes and voted to pass it.

“It is important that Democrats now recognize Obamacare doesn’t work as promised, but what has changed? The difference now is that Democrats want to repeal Obamacare and replace it with socialized medicine. I welcome their recognition of Obamacare’s flaws, but socialized medicine won’t help Americans, either.”
