Barrow Votes Against Healthcare Bill Repeal
Thursday, 20 January 2011

January 20--  Twelfth District Congressman John Barrow voted against repeal of the healthcare bill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The bill to repeal passed the House Wednesday with all but three Democrat congressmen voting against repeal.

Congressman Barrow voted against the bill last year and we asked him why the change in position.  Here is his answer.

"I didn't think last year's health care bill took care of the most pressing health care issues this country faces, but I don't think this repeal is the answer, either.  We need to fix what's broken with that bill, but we shouldn't throw out the good with the bad. We need to keep the parts that prohibit folks from getting denied coverage based on preexisting conditions, and extend health coverage to kids just out of college. That's what folks are telling me they want, and that's what I plan on doing."
