Ernst calls for continuing efforts to repeal, replace Obamacare

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst sent a letter to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today, calling him to press ahead on repealing and replacing Obamacare. 

In the letter Senator Ernst said:

“While traveling across Iowa, I hear countless stories from Iowans facing these premium increases, as well as increases in other out of pocket costs like deductibles and copays that they simply cannot afford. We don’t have the option to sit back and do nothing; Iowans, like so many Americans across the country, are demanding relief from ObamaCare. It is imperative that the results of last week, and months of work leading up to it, are not the end of our efforts. Rather, we still must work as hard as we can to repeal this failed law and ensure people have access to affordable, patient-centered health care.”
