WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) released the following statement after voting in favor of the American Health Care Act (AHCA):

"Obamacare has driven premiums beyond what most of my constituents can afford to pay. Several of the counties I represent have just one insurer available to them on the exchange. The costs and deductibles continue to rise. This situation is simply not acceptable. States need the ability to manage health care locally. More local control ensures flexibility for Utah to adjust and adapt to local needs. No doubt there is still work to do. But I believe the Republican’s health care plan is the right first step towards fixing a complex and crumbling system.”
