May 5, 2017

Sixth District Congressman Andy Barr was among 217 who voted in favor of the American Health Care Act Thursday

Kentucky’s Sixth District Representative to Congress, Andy Barr, was among those who voted yesterday for the American Health Care Act, proposed legislation that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Barr spoke with us about his vote and the nature of the bill, saying he considered yesterday “a good day for the American people who are facing higher costs and fewer choices in their healthcare.”

Congressman Andy Barr expects the American Health Care Act to be approved by the Senate, even if it would require the Vice President to cast a tie-breaking vote.
