WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) issued the following statement after the measure passed:

“Since the President signed Obamacare into law, the House has voted more than 60 times to fully or partially repeal it. Today, I am pleased that for the first time, the repeal legislation will be sent to the President’s desk. This measure will not only reduce our deficit by $516 billion over a ten year period, it’s the first step to a patient centered healthcare system. By repealing the  “Cadillac” tax and the automatic enrollment requirement, gutting the Obamacare “slush fund,” and doing away with other taxes and mandates that cripple small business growth and stifle our economy, Congress —backed by the American people — has finally given the President the opportunity to put Obamacare behind us.   

Moreover, this bill rightly places a year-long moratorium on Planned Parenthood funding and redirects that funding to Community Health Center Programs which provide comprehensive women’s healthcare. The President will likely veto this legislation, and in doing so will send a  message to the American people that he believes Washington knows best, consumers should pay more while receiving less, and organizations that traffic in unborn baby body parts should be funded by our taxpayers. I urge the President to listen to the American people and sign this legislation without delay.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
