WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09), recognized as a conservative leader both in the North Carolina Senate (2003-2008) and the U.S. House of Representatives, has been appointed to a second term on the Steering Committee of the influential Republican Study Committee by RSC Chairman Mark Walker (R-NC).
Since 1973, the Republican Study Committee has served as the conservative caucus for House Republicans, focusing on the tools and research necessary to advance conservative legislative solutions to health care reform, tax reform, national defense, economic growth, a balanced budget, and other issues.
“Americans are tired of big government, one-size-fits-all policies killing jobs, limiting our health care choices, and weakening our national defense,” said Congressman Pittenger. “As part of the Steering Committee of the Republican Study Committee, I am focused on common sense legislative solutions to reform health care, support job growth, and restore fiscal sanity in Washington. With a unified Republican government, we have a great opportunity to do good things for hardworking Americans and secure our country.”
In his first term on the RSC Steering Committee (2015-2016), Congressman Pittenger helped draft legislation to repeal Obamacare and replace it with affordable, patient-centered reforms:
· Affordable health insurance through smarter, fairer tax deductions
· Increased support for those with pre-existing conditions
· Lower costs through increased competition
· The freedom to choose the health plan that’s right for your family
Congressman Pittenger will continue advocating these principles as House Republicans work to merge several existing proposals into a unified plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.Share:
