CRAMER: Statement on Health Care Executive Order

Oct 12, 2017
Press Release


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order directing his Administration to craft new policies increasing competition, choice, and affordability for health care across the American workforce:

“Given the Senate’s unwillingness to repeal and replace Obamacare, I greatly appreciate President Trump’s decisive actions. While an executive order can never take the place of passing meaningful health care reform legislation, it’s the least we can do until another U.S. Senator decides to put the interests of the American people first by voting to fix our collapsing health care system.”

In the House, Cramer voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. He also voted on several other major health reform bills including the Small Business Health Fairness Act of 2017, which allows small businesses to join together in association health plans across state lines.
