U.S. Congressman Rick Allen applauded action by the House on Tuesday to pass legislation fully repealing ObamaCare.

Allen, the new representative for Georgia’s 12th district, was a cosponsor of the measure, which the House approved with a vote of 239-186.

“From skyrocketing premiums to canceled health plans and lost access to their doctors, Georgians across the 12th district have felt the devastating effects of ObamaCare,” Allen stated in a news release. “Its burdens on small businesses continue to destroy jobs and have cut the hours and paychecks of millions of hardworking Americans. Simply put, ObamaCare is an unworkable law that is wrong for Americans and disastrous for our economy.”

Allen continued, “I’m proud to act on behalf of my constituents who overwhelmingly oppose this law by supporting its full repeal. Importantly, the legislation passed by the House today allows Congress the opportunity to work on commonsense, patient-centered solutions to improve our health care system. We need reforms that truly lower the cost of care while enhancing competition and putting the American people back in charge of their health care decisions.”
