Griffith Statement on House Passage of Keep Your Health Plan Act
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act, which passed the House of Representatives in a bipartisan vote of 261-157:
“I remain of the belief that Obamacare was fatally flawed from its inception, that it will not work, and that it ought to be repealed and replaced. But until that happens, we ought to continue working together to keep the President’s ‘if-you-like-it-you-can-keep-it’ promise and see that more Americans are able to keep health care plans of their choice.
“The American people have been told over the last several years that they would be able to keep their health insurance plan. As we have been seeing, for many people, that simply isn’t true. The President shouldn’t try to patch this with an administrative fix of questionable legal authority. He should instead use the constitutionally sound method of working with Congress. I call on President Obama to help Congress find a permanent way to keep his promise of health care choice.”
