Alexander Votes to Repeal Health Care Law

Posted on February 2, 2011

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today voted to repeal the new health care law, which he warned during the Senate health care debate would prove to be “an historic mistake.”

Alexander said of his vote today: “Senate Republicans promised the American people we’d vote to repeal the health care law and then work to replace it with common-sense reforms that lower health care costs so more Americans can afford to buy health insurance.”

Earlier today, Alexander discussed the Senate’s vote to repeal the law on Fox News, noting that even though Republicans lost the Senate vote on the health care bill, “We won the argument: what we were saying was that if we pass this law, premiums are going up, the debt is going up, people are going to lose their insurance – and that’s actually happened.” Video of the interview can be found by clicking HERE.
