Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan today issued the following statement following the House vote to pass Trumpcare:

“The Republican vote today to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with Trumpcare will have devastating consequences for hard working families, and is an absolute betrayal of everything we stand for as Americans. House Republicans’ message to the American people? Get to the back of the line – behind insurance companies, HMO’s, and special interests. They took a bill that that didn’t reduce the cost of premiums, that didn’t expand health coverage for all, that didn’t protect people with pre-existing conditions and that nobody liked, and nobody wanted, and decided it was good policy. This is a dark day for the United States House of Representatives and our country. Republican Leadership and the Trump Administration should be ashamed. I call on the Senate to promptly reject this bill and bring security to the millions of Americans who now feel helpless and less certain about their own futures and health,” said Congressman Ryan.
