Murray Calls on President Trump and Senate Republicans to Keep Promises, Reject House Republican Plans to Undermine Health Care System

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, issued the following statement on new information about House Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act and undermine the health care system.

 

“The deeply harmful path House Republicans have laid out would spell disaster for families nationwide—causing millions of people to lose health care coverage, raising premiums, slashing states’ Medicaid funding, undermining protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and as if all that wasn’t enough, it would defund Planned Parenthood as well. President Trump, who promised families he would provide insurance for everyone, should be the first to oppose it—and Senate Republicans who committed to doing no harm should follow quickly after.”
