Cortez Masto: Repeal of ACA Would Be Disastrous for Nevada

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement highlighting her opposition to any attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“As we’ve learned from dozens of failed attempts to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, repealing the current law poses harmful risks to millions of Americans and the public overwhelmingly rejects any effort to take away their healthcare. Republicans should end their partisan crusade to repeal the ACA and start working with Democrats to find solutions that work for all Americans and to improve the existing law. A vote to repeal the ACA is a vote to take away healthcare coverage from hundreds of thousands of Nevadans and millions of Americans, and we will not stand for anything that will put countless lives at risk. Repealing the ACA would prove disastrous for Nevada and has never been a good idea.”
