Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan today released the following statement in response to the announcement that the Trumpcare Bill was pulled from consideration.

“This is a victory for the American people.  This bill would have devastated hard working Americans and their families. Trumpcare was an absolute betrayal of everything we stand for as Americans and was a cynical legislative attempt to solve a political problem. Republican Leadership and the Trump Administration should be ashamed to have even tried to sell this plan to the American people. Now is the time for Republicans to sit down with us and work on making sure our health care system covers everyone in the country at an affordable price, and that we maintain our standing as the leader in the world in health care technology and advances."
