McCollum Statement on House Republicans’ Affordable Care Act Repeal Bill

March 6, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after House Republicans announced their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

"It is now obvious why House Republicans waited until the last minute to reveal their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act: Their bill takes us backwards and gives more control over our health care to big drug and insurance companies.

“This Republican bill jeopardizes care for tens of millions of children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities. It will lead to higher costs for working families across America and cut billions of dollars in funding for Minnesota and other states.

"To protect our care, we must stand together as Americans and reject this backwards Republican proposal. As a nation, we must work together to improve the Affordable Care Act and ensure that every American has access to affordable, quality care."
