Republican Party of the United States Virgin Islands Chairman John Canegata issued the following statement supporting congressional Republicans as they repeal and replace Obamacare:
“Obamacare is a complete failure, not least because it didn’t cover all Americans, including those in the Virgin Islands and the other four U.S. territories. The repeal and replace legislation put forth by the congressional majority is a result of an exhaustive and inclusive process. It lowers insurance premiums by 10 percent, reduces the federal deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars, and provides flexibility and real choice.”
Canegata was at the White House and U.S. Senate on Monday discussing Obamacare repeal and replace, as well as other issues impacting the Virgin Islands.
