Braley Statement on House Vote to Repeal Healthcare Reform Law

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement today after voting against a Republican bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

"I voted against repeal today for the sake of thousands of Iowans like my nephew, Tucker. Tucker survived a fight with liver cancer at age 2 because he had health insurance. But his parents lived in constant fear of losing their jobs because if they did, Tucker would be denied new insurance due to his pre-existing condition. The healthcare reform law ended those fears -- but repealing the law would roll back this important reform and many more.

"Because of the Affordable Care Act, 18,000 young Iowans can stay on their parents' insurance up to age 26, insurance companies are prohibited from denying coverage due to preexisting conditions, screenings for diseases like breast cancer are covered 100 percent, and 42,000 Iowa seniors are saving an average of $615 per year on their Medicare prescription drug benefits.

"Iowans can't afford to go back to where we started."
