Murray: “Trumpcare Falls Miles Short Of The Promises The President And His Party Made”

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


“Trumpcare falls miles short of the promises the President and his party made to families and communities. It would take coverage away from people across the country, raise patients’ health care costs, put power back in the hands of insurance companies, and double down on attacks on women’s health by defunding Planned Parenthood. Republicans have now made it absolutely clear they are willing to create chaos and leave families sicker and less financially secure just to score political points—and Senate Democrats are going to fight this harmful effort every step of the way.”
