Congressman Turner released the following statement after reintroducing three pieces of important healthcare legislation:
- H.R. 285 – Healthcare Tax Relief and Mandate Repeal Act
- H.R. 286 – First Responder Medical Device Tax Relief Act
- H.R. 287 – Student Job Protection Act of 2017
“As we move to repeal and replace Obamacare, I have reintroduced three important pieces of legislation that will make certain this law is dismantled. This healthcare package would eliminate the growth-hindering effects of the President’s healthcare law. The medical device tax and the individual and employer mandates are two of the most significant, ill-advised policies and my package of bills would fix this once and for all.
“Additionally, the Student Job Protection Act would mitigate the job killing effects of Obamacare that hurt students who are employed by an institution of higher education and who receive healthcare coverage. I will continue to fight to ensure everyone has access to quality, affordable healthcare and these three bills place us on a path to achieve that goal.”
