McCollum Statement on Collapse of Senate Trumpcare

July 28, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after the Senate rejected the so-called “skinny repeal” Trumpcare amendment:

“Trumpcare would have caused untold pain for millions of Americans. The American people made their voices heard and House and Senate Democrats stood strong against this legislation, which is why it failed last night.

“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.

“My Democratic colleagues and I are ready to get to work, find solutions, and ensure that every American has affordable, quality health care.”
