Rep. Deutch on Speaker Ryan's Decision to Cancel Votes on Disastrous ACA Repeal
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) strongly opposes the American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628) and issued this statement after Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) canceled a vote on the bill scheduled for this afternoon:
"President Trump and Speaker Ryan should be ashamed of themselves for trying to force through a disastrous bill that would have ripped away health coverage from tens of millions of Americans, dramatically increased premiums, and severely cut Medicare and Medicaid," said Congressman Deutch."The American people spoke loud and clear; they do not support gutting their own health benefits in order to give massive tax cuts to health insurance companies. House Republicans need to start working with Democrats on real policy solutions that will benefit the American people."
