Mark Meadows’ Ryancare opposition a profile in courage

March 21, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows’ (R-N.C.) support of a full repeal of Obamacare and opposing the now-proposed replacement on the table:

“House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows is a man of unusual character and integrity in Washington, D.C.  Most would bend to the whim of a newly elected President, and compromise core principles to give him an early win. But Mark Meadows understands that restoring our health care system to a free market orientation is too important to play politics over.

“Representative Meadows gets it right when he says that any new health care law must lower costs for the average consumer and rid itself of Obamacare mandates. The Ryancare legislation fails both these key principles.

“The people of the 11th District of North Carolina owe their Congressman a great debt of gratitude for standing firm, even as the President who he campaigned for so vigorously is pushing him to support the disastrous Ryancare legislation.

“Meadows is exhibiting the kind of courage that Americans expect but so rarely receive from their elective representatives.”
