While Republicans are working to repeal Obamacare, there will still be a stable transition period so "no one has the rug pulled out from underneath them" Rep. Diane Black said in Saturday's GOP address

"Our goal is a system that lowers costs, and spurs free market competition, and ultimately empowers you, not bureaucrats in Washington," the Tennessee Republican said in the weekly statement, decrying Democrats in Washington using "all kinds of scare tactics" in order to keep the healthcare law.

“After so many broken promises, it’s all they have left, really," said Black, who serves as interim House Budget Committee chairwoman. “Don’t let them scare you or lecture you. It’s exactly the kind of elitist arrogance the American people have just soundly rejected.”

Black, a nurse, said a new system will still allow for protections for people with pre-existing conditions, while allowing insurance to be purchased across state lines.

"I’ve spent decades watching the impact of healthcare decisions in Washington on my patients’ faces and in their billing statements," said Black. "This isn’t about slogans and scare tactics, it’s about people’s lives and their bottom lines."
