Congressman Jeff Landry (R, LA-03) has been honored as a “Champion of Healthcare Innovation” by the Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC), a coalition of leaders of the nation’s premier health care companies and organizations. Landry was honored at the HLC’s annual Healthcare Innovations Expo on Capitol Hill.
“I am proud to be recognized as a representative who fights for quality, affordable, and accessible health care,” said Landry. “Since taking office, I have fought to repeal Obamacare and replace it with real solutions that make health care more affordable and more-patient centered. I have voted against Obamacare at least 19 times, and I will continue to have work hard on ending Obamacare’s restraint on economic recovery and job creation.”
“Our nation’s healthcare innovators are constantly developing new techniques and technologies to extend and enhance our lives, but we know there’s a great deal of work to be done to achieve the optimal healthcare system Americans need and deserve,” said HLC president Mary R. Grealy. “We’re grateful for Congressman Landry’s leadership, dedication and hard work in advancing the quality, accessibility and cost-effectiveness of American healthcare.”
Landry, who declined his Congressional health care and retirement benefits, was grateful for the recognition. “I am humbled the HLC’s award and will continue to do all I can to put health care choices back in the hands of the patients and the doctors.
Yesterday, U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry joined U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, U.S. Senator David Vitter, U.S. Rep. Steve King, and other members of the House and Senate in accepting over 1.6 million petitions from American citizens who are urging Congress to immediately repeal Obamacare.
