WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement regarding the release of the discussion draft for the Senate healthcare legislation:

“Healthcare is one of the most important issues facing individuals and families across Kansas. I was not and am not for Obamacare and have seen firsthand the negative impact the law has had on too many Kansans. I was the first member of Congress to offer legislation to repeal the burdensome law and we must make certain it is replaced with a plan that improves the opportunities for more Americans and Kansans to access affordable and quality healthcare.

“I will fully review this legislation and am awaiting the Congressional Budget Office score to gain a complete understanding of the impacts and consequences this bill would have on hardworking Kansans. If this bill isn’t good for Kansas, it isn’t good for me.”
