WASHINGTON D.C. – Maine’s Second District Representative Bruce Poliquin has broken his silence in the on going health care debate
Poliquin announced Tuesday that he does not support the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare,” without an alternative or replacement plan.
In 2015 the republican congressman also voted against repeal without replacement.
He said while he believes “Obamacare” is not working, inaction by the U.S. Senate should not prevent people from having access to insurance.
Poliquin believes that part of the problem with the ACA is the quick expansion of medicaid and said it should be put on a financially stable path.
He joins Maine’s two Senators, Susan Collins and Angus King as well as Maine’s First District Representative Chellie Pingree in opposing health care repeal without replacement.
