Aderholt Statement on American Healthcare Act
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement after the AHA was pulled from consideration.
"There is a lot of disappointment with the healthcare bill being pulled from the House floor for a vote. I was planning to vote ‘yes’ today to repeal Obamacare, however the entrenched power of ‘no’ has continued gridlock in Washington. There are a number of my colleagues on all sides of the political spectrum that just cannot get to a “yes” vote for any legislation of significance. This is the tide that the President is swimming against and what is holding back a repeal and replacement of Obamacare. I still have hope that we can continue to work on this repeal bill and replace Obamacare."
In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
