Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) voted in favor of HR 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. Following the vote, Rep. Bishop released the following statement:

“I voted against the original Obamacare bill because it was bad policy. I argued for free market alternatives that were available at the time, but then-speaker Pelosi refused to allow them to be discussed. I’ve cast over 50 votes to change, modify, or repeal Obamacare. Our vote today is the best effort to force the president, if he vetoes it, to at least recognize that the so-called Affordable Care Act is unaffordable and ineffective. As a member of congress, forced to enroll in Obamacare, my first-hand experience validates that assessment.”
