Working with President Trump, the House made real progress for the people of Missouri and fulfilled our promise to provide relief from the Obamacare death spiral. The American Health Care Act will provide more access to affordable health coverage while stabilizing the insurance marketplace, lowering premiums, and reducing our federal debt and taxes. Obamacare has made healthcare completely unaffordable and unworkable for the American people, and I applaud my colleagues for listening to the needs of our families at home and coming together to pass this historic piece of legislation.
Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides 320,000 abortions every year, has begun attacking me as a supposed enemy of women’s healthcare. Nothing could be further from the truth. In Missouri, there are 12 Planned Parenthood facilities scattered across our 114 counties. However, we have 588 health care clinics that prioritize women’s health and wellness, which is why I voted last Congress to increase funding to those very clinics by hundreds of millions of dollars. #ProLife
