U.S. Senator Tom Cotton Statement on Vote to Begin Obamacare Repeal

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after the Senate voted to begin debate on legislation to repeal Obamacare:

“Obamacare continues its downward spiral, sending premiums through the roof and leaving people with far fewer choices. We owe it to Arkansans to finally give them some relief from this law. It’s what we promised, and what they deserve.

“This vote is the first step toward solving the problems created by Obamacare. And as the Senate continues to deliberate, I will be carefully monitoring any legislative changes that are proposed. It’s important we get this right, so that we create a health-care system that works for Arkansans.”
