Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock made the following statement on the American Health Care Act:

“Healthcare is a very personal life and death issue. My goals on healthcare reform are to provide patient-centered reforms that provide better access to high quality, affordable care and covers preexisting conditions without lifetime limits. I did not support the AHCA today because of the many uncertainties in achieving those goals. As the process moves forward I hope that we can continue to work together to fix our broken healthcare system. We have seen over the past year more bad news of skyrocketing premiums, rising deductibles, and fewer choices for millions of American families. The status quo is unsustainable and we need to find real solutions for the American people.”
