Congressman Gene Green Statement on Senate GOP Delaying Trumpcare Vote

June 27, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC Today, Congressman Gene Green (D-TX) issued the following statement after Senate Republicans announced they will postpone votes on Trumpcare until after July 4th recess:

“It has been irresponsible for Republicans in the House and Senate to work behind closed doors without public input on a bill that will affect one-sixth of the economy. Republicans thought they could jam this mean Trumpcare bill without hearing from their constituents, but today’s news is a result of the American people calling their Representatives and Senators and voicing their frustrations.”

“We must continue to work together and fight back against a bill will kick millions of Americans off their coverage, cut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and, and cause health care costs to skyrocket for working Americans.”

“When the Affordable Care Act passed, it was debated in dozens Senate and House committees and followed regular order. If Republicans want to fix healthcare, then they need to stop what they’re doing and work with Democrats to improve the Affordable Care Act.”
