Cortez Masto Statement on House GOP’s Failure to Pass Trumpcare

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement in response to the House Republicans’ ill-fated American Health Care Act: 

“The House Republicans’ bill to ‘repeal and replace’ the Affordable Care Act was doomed to fail from the very beginning. This bill would have pulled the rug from under the most vulnerable and the American public saw it exactly for what it is: an ill-conceived, reckless bill. I am thankful to everyone who called their representatives and spoke out against it. This is a victory for the American people and prevents what would have been catastrophic for hardworking families, rural communities, and our seniors. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put forward a plan that improves our current law, not one that leaves millions without insurance and raises costs on Nevada families. I encourage Nevadans to continue using their voices. Our fight doesn’t end here.”
