Rep. Sullivan 1/21/2010 Email Press Release:
Repealing Obamacare

This week, my House Republican Colleagues and I passed H.R. 2, legislation repealing the new Healthcare law known as Obamacare. Like most Oklahomans, I believe our nation’s healthcare system is in need of serious reform – costs are too high, and not enough people have access to quality care – but that reform cannot come at the expense of families, small businesses and compromising the doctor patient relationship like Obamacare does.

Repealing Obamacare will allow us to start from scratch to develop a healthcare system that works for all Americans, without unconstitutional, costly government mandates that destroy jobs. Please know that the healthcare debate in Washington is far from over, and we have a long road ahead. H.R. 2 has now been sent to the U.S. Senate for further consideration. Please know that I will continue my work on behalf of all Oklahomans to ensure your voices are heard, and that Obamcare is repealed and replaced with common sense, consumer friendly reforms that lower costs and increases access to for families and businesses across our nation.
