Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) said Tuesday that the House Republicans’ alternative to Obamacare, the American Health Care Act, which was unveiled Monday evening, is “a step in the wrong direction.”
During the unveiling, House Speaker Paul Ryan said the American Health Care Act “is a plan to drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance.”
Lee, however, expressed opposition to the plan in a Tuesday statement.
“This is not the Obamacare repeal bill we’ve been waiting for. It is a missed opportunity and a step in the wrong direction,” Lee said.
