NEW—Murray to Republican Leaders: Drop Trumpcare, Return to Regular Order, & Allow Bipartisan HELP Negotiations to Continue

Murray: “I am still at the table ready to finish the promising work Chairman Alexander and I were able to do, and I think that can happen quickly as soon as Republican leaders allow it”

 

(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 continuing to urge Republican leaders to reverse course on Cassidy-Graham-Heller, the latest version of Trumpcare, and allow bipartisan negotiations between her and Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to move forward:

 

“I know there are members on both sides of the aisle in the Senate who would prefer to work together, under regular order, to lower premiums for families rather than rush a partisan, deeply harmful repeal bill through the Senate—especially given how much common ground we were able to find. I am still at the table ready to finish the promising work Chairman Alexander and I were able to do, and I think that can happen quickly as soon as Republican leaders allow it.”
