Corker to Vote for Amendment to Repeal Core Elements of Obamacare

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today announced he will vote for an amendment to repeal the core elements of Obamacare, while allowing for a reasonable transition period for a replacement to be developed and implemented.

The amendment vote is currently scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

“As I have said before, I believe the best path forward is for Congress to repeal Obamacare after a reasonable transition period,” said Corker. “This amendment would take us back to a level playing field where, by a date certain, all sides have incentive to work together to develop a health care replacement that would generate broad support and stand the test of time. I urge my colleagues to support this amendment and am eager to continue our work on this issue.”

Following the vote, floor debate will continue on the underlying Senate bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Additional amendment votes are expected.
