Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today released the following statement in response to the reveal of the House Republican’s Obamacare replacement: 
“Two provisions I have authored were secured in the House GOP Obamacare replacement; my across-state-lines provision, H.R. 543, and expanding the use of health savings accounts, H.R. 4090. By allowing consumers to purchase insurance across-state-lines, we are empowering them with more choices and a more competitive environment that will lower the price of healthcare policies. Across-state-lines purchasing along with expanding the use of health savings accounts will put patients back in the driver’s seat and allow them to choose the plan that best fits them. Patients will no longer face the one-size-fits-all failed policies of Obamacare. 
“We’ve heard time and time again from constituents who tell us their insurance policies are simply too expensive to use. What we’ve learned through Obamacare is that if you can’t afford your co-pay, deductible, or premium your insurance card is worthless. Republicans have been listening and together we are presenting a solution to the American people. Our plan begins with the end in mind – access to affordable health care for all Americans,” Blackburn said.
