July 28, 2017 Press Release
"Beginning today, Congressional Republicans must work with Democrats for bipartisan health care solutions that build on the success of the Affordable Care Act. And the Trump administration must stop sabotaging this law and making it harder for families to get the care they need."
July 18, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump-Pence-Ryan-McConnell plan for health care was never about helping Americans. Instead, it has always been about tax cuts for billionaires paid for by sabotaging the Affordable Care Act and terminating care for our children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities. Today, Trumpcare is collapsing under the weight of its cruelty and the American people’s resistance to this terrible legislation."
June 22, 2017 Press Release
Just like House Republicans’ legislation, Senate Republicans’ Trumpcare bill takes away health care from children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities in order to give billionaires lavish tax breaks.
May 23, 2017 Press Release
President Trump’s 2018 budget is a cruel and reckless plan that benefits billionaires, punishes the vulnerable, and abandons working families and small businesses. I strongly oppose this budget and will do everything I can to prevent its callous policies from becoming law.
May 4, 2017 Press Release
The passage of Trumpcare is a reflection of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans’ values: they will abandon the sick and the vulnerable to give tax breaks to billionaires and big corporations.

Every family, senior, and person with a disability in Minnesota will have their guaranteed benefits, coverage, and protections stripped away by this dangerous and cruel House Republican bill.
March 24, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after Speaker Paul Ryan pulled TrumpCare rather than face certain defeat in the House of Representatives: “Congress heard the American people loud and clear: They don’t want Republicans to take away their health care."
March 24, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) spoke on the House Floor this morning as the House prepares to consider TrumpCare: "Mr. Speaker, TrumpCare is a disaster for children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities... It is not a health care bill, it is a prescription for disaster. I urge my colleagues to strongly oppose TrumpCare."
March 23, 2017 Press Release
Despite massive opposition within Congress and around the country, House Republicans voted tonight to advance their disastrous health care bill. Under this ‘martial law’ authority, Speaker Ryan will now be able to bring this bill to the floor without giving Congress or the American people any chance to see it or understand its effects in advance.
