Griffin Votes To Repeal Health Care Law

WASHINGTON – Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) today issued the following statement after voting for H.R. 2, legislation to repeal the 2010 health care law:

 “I am proud to fulfill the promise I made to the people of the Second District by voting to repeal this health care law that fails to address the rising cost of health care, interferes with the doctor-patient relationship, adds over $700 billion to the national debt and stifles private sector job creation. This is the first step in the debate over real health care reform. I look forward to voting for a new bill that addresses rising costs, increases access to health care, is sustainable and promotes new jobs and economic growth.”

 The bill passed the House, 245-189, earning unanimous bipartisan support of members of the Arkansas House delegation. The roll call vote can be found here.
