Republican congressman Trey Gowdy of upstate South Carolina appears to have the world on a string, as he is already following up a career-making 2016 with a new year that clearly finds him on a roll.
First, Gowdy was named to the elite House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in Congress, a move that rankled Hillary-loving Democrats deeply. Next, Trey learned that he was named Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations, an incredibly powerful position. During all of these events, Gowdy found time to drop a bombshell on weak, defeated Democrats.
Like anyone with common sense, Gowdy recognizes what a failure Obamacare has been, and was a vocal proponent of the budget resolution that began the process to repeal Obamacare. Gowdy plans to continue to fight to repeal Obama’s law, and he had some harsh words for Democrats.
Said Gowdy in a statement, “Obamacare is failing. Premium prices have skyrocketed, insurance companies have fled the market and BlueCross BlueShield is now the sole provider of Obamacare in South Carolina. Millions of Americans are quickly being forced off of their health insurance plans, contrary to President Obama promising if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Today’s vote is only the first step in repealing and replacing Obamacare. By passing this resolution, authorizing committees in both the House and Senate will begin the process of replacing the Affordable Care Act while simultaneously repealing it.”
He added, “As the son of a doctor, I understand firsthand healthcare decisions are best left to individuals and their doctors rather than Washington bureaucrats and politicians. Congress is in the process of proposing market-driven, patient-centered solutions to ensure every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare.” Do you agree with powerful Congressman Gowdy?
