Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) announced his plan to vote against the Republican-led American Health Care Act (AHCA) due, in part, to the negative impact it will have on rural hospitals, low-income families, and Americans nearing retirement age.
Transparency is not a partisan issue. The American people deserve accountability from their elected officials in Washington.
Creating high-paying jobs across our country is a key priority of mine in Congress. By investing in education and skills training, we can create a 21st Century workforce that is ready to fill open jobs. Congress must also take bipartisan action to reduce burdensome regulations that make our small businesses less competitive in local and global markets.
Fostering a healthy educational environment at a young age is critical for future academic achievement for Arizona students. We must also continue to invest in our elementary and secondary education, and ensure our students are receiving the best education.
Congress must work to pass bipartisan legislation that improves the health and wellbeing of Americans by expanding access to insurance coverage, bringing down the cost of prescription drugs, and investing in rural hospitals.
Our veterans have faithfully served our country, and it is our responsibility to ensure they have the best care when they return home. I am fighting to keep our sacred promises to our veterans.
