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.

“I am proud of the way House Democrats stood united to protect our children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities from TrumpCare. Our fight is not over and I will strongly resist all Republican efforts, either by legislation or regulation, to undermine the health care Minnesotans and Americans depend on.

“The developments of the past few days, as President Trump and House Republicans retreated in chaos, offer a powerful lesson: when the American people speak out, we can stop President Trump and Republicans’ backwards agenda.”
