WASHINGTON, June 22, 2017 – Chip Rogers, president and CEO of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, released the following statement today on the release of the Senate healthcare bill draft:
“This bill is a step forward in the process of fixing the broken healthcare system. Affordable Care Act provisions, such as the employer mandate and the bevy of taxes, are a costly burden to businesses that keeps them from expanding, creating new jobs and providing actual affordable health insurance options for their employees. As this bill moves forward, we’ll continue to engage our 16,000 members to speak to their members of Congress about the healthcare challenges they face.”
AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the world. The more than 16,000 AAHOA members own almost one in every two hotels in the United States. With billions of dollars in property assets and hundreds of thousands of employees, AAHOA members are core economic contributors in virtually every community in the United States. As an association, AAHOA is a proud defender of free enterprise and the foremost current-day example of realizing the American Dream.
