Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after House Republicans invoked “martial law” authority to advance their health care bill on the House Floor:

“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.

“No matter how hard they try to keep the American people in the dark, President Trump and Congressional Republicans cannot hide the terrible reality of this bill. I have heard from thousands of my constituents and opposition to this bill is nearly unanimous. I stand with them and millions of Americans as a strong no vote on this prescription for disaster.”
