Velázquez on Announcement to Remove Graham-Cassidy from Senate Floor

Velázquez on Announcement to Remove Graham-Cassidy from Senate Floor
September 26, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC –Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement today regarding the failure of Graham-Cassidy, the latest Senate Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act: 

           “Once again, the American people have stood firm in opposing President Trump’s and Congressional Republicans’ heartless scheme to rip health insurance from millions. The visceral opposition to Graham-Cassidy exposed the bill for what it is—a rushed effort to phase out Medicaid, hike up costs for preexisting conditions and roll back essential health benefits. 

           “I urge Republicans in Congress to put their crusade to gut the Affordable Care Act to rest once and for all. It is time for a measured, bipartisan effort to stabilize health insurance markets and expand affordable coverage for all Americans.”
