The Commercial Appeal is reporting that Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Rep. David Kustoff (R-TN) have both said they will vote yes this afternoon on Paul Ryan’s ObamaCare Lite bill:
U.S. Reps. David Kustoff of Memphis and Marsha Blackburn of Brentwood said Friday they are supporting the bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
“For seven years, Obamacare has been a burden on the American people,” Kustoff said. “With premiums rising and insurers dropping out of the exchange at an alarming rate, the failing health care law is in a death spiral. Republicans have promised to repeal this disastrous law and provide relief to the American people. Later today, I will vote to do just that.”
Blackburn said, she, too will vote for the bill.
“With the bill as it is currently written, I am voting yes in order to move the process to the Senate,” she said.
Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) is the only member of the Tennessee Republican Congressional delegation who has not said he will support the bill.
