I fully support the President and Speaker Ryan’s decision to take additional time to get health care reform right instead of right now. Largely, Arkansans want health care reform that eliminates failed policy and starts from scratch. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) made some changes, but ultimately the new bill maintained Obamacare’s overall structure and approach, an approach that cemented the federal government’s role in health insurance. The AHCA also didn’t address core problems facing Arkansans, like health care access and rising premiums and deductibles.

Largely, Arkansans want health care reform that eliminates failed policy and starts from scratch. The AHCA makes several key changes, but ultimately the bill maintains Obamacare’s overall structure and approach, an approach that cements the federal government’s role in health insurance. I’m also concerned that the refundable tax credit essentially creates a new entitlement program, and at a point when we’re $20 trillion dollars in debt and facing interest rate increases, I don’t want to engage in another entitlement program that exacerbates the problem. Ultimately, I’m not convinced that the ACHA addresses the core problems of health care access and rising premiums and deductibles.

"As it stands right now, I'm going to vote against it," the Republican from Jonesboro said. "I can't see changing my vote to yes at this point." Crawford, the only House member from Arkansas who plans to vote no, said the health care package will prove costly. "When we're $20 trillion in debt, and we're facing interest rate increases, I don't want to engage in another [entitlement] program that exacerbates that problem," he said. "Big government under Republicans vs. big government under Democrats is still big government."
