After silence, GOP freshman Duffy supports repeal

A freshman GOP member who did not campaign against the healthcare reform law voiced strong support for the repeal bill Wednesday afternoon.

“Americans wanted healthcare reform for some time now, but they don’t want what passed last spring,” said Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) on the House floor Wednesday afternoon.

“Today’s repeal is the first step,” he continued. “Tomorrow, we begin the process of replacement with commonsense market-based solutions.”

According to local press, during last year's campaign, Duffy explicitly did not push for repeal and even touted some of the reform law's benefits.
