WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today voted on a key procedural vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.  Sen. Kennedy released the following statement about his vote:

“Obamacare is a dismal failure.  In the past eight years under the ‘Affordable’ Care Act, we have seen premiums around the country skyrocket.  In Louisiana alone we have seen premiums increase 123%.  Obamacare as we know it is not sustainable, it is not accessible, and it is nowhere near affordable.  I made a promise to the people of Louisiana that I would repeal Obamacare given the chance.  Today, I worked to fulfill that promise,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to deliver a health care system to the American people that looks like it was designed on purpose.”
