VIDEO: In Testy Exchange on Senate Floor, Sen. Murray Slams Republicans’ Secretive Process on Trumpcare Plan: “The American Public Deserves Better”




(Washington, D.C.)  Today, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking member on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, joined Democrats on the Senate floor to blast Republicans for the secretive process in which they crafted their cruel Trumpcare plan and slammed Senate Republicans for trying to rush through their version of Trumpcare, which would raise costs for families, defund Planned Parenthood, gut Medicaid, take health care coverage away from people across the country, and more.


In an exchange with Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX), Sen. Murray said: “We’re asking that the American people, who have a right to know what is going to impact every one of their lives, every one of their families, every one of their communities, every one of their businesses, have more than a discussion draft, more than 10 hours of debate, time to look at it and know how we’re even going to do an amendment process next week. This is deplorable.”
