Graham On The Senate Health Care Bill

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, which was released today. 

“I will carefully review this legislation to ensure that if it were to become law, it would be beneficial to the people of South Carolina. 

“Every day brings fresh evidence that Obamacare is moving toward eventual collapse.  There are now more than 40 counties across the United States which will not have a health care provider offering coverage on the Obamacare exchange. 

“In South Carolina, the situation is not much better as we are down to one provider on our Obamacare exchange, and that provider has expressed doubts about whether they can afford to continue to offer their product.

“I would prefer to address health care reform in a bipartisan manner, but Democrats are unwilling to work with President Trump and Congressional Republicans to fix the mess they created.      

“Finally, South Carolinians want Obamacare repealed and replaced with something better.  Only after a careful review of the legislation will I be able to determine if this bill achieves those goals.”
