From U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.: “Repealing the failing Obamacare law that has driven up costs and eliminated choice for many Georgia families is a commitment of mine because hardworking Georgia families deserve better. Today’s vote allows my Senate colleagues and me to participate openly in debate on just how we plan to help families and address this failed law. I will be actively engaged in debate and will carefully review the final bill to ensure we do the right thing for Georgians and all Americans.”

From U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga.: “Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight and soon the very people who need help the most will lose their insurance. In Georgia, 96 of 159 counties only have one health care provider leaving consumers with no choice … This failed system isn’t going to fix itself, and I am glad the Senate has started a full debate on ways to improve health care.”
