Velázquez on Republican Attempts to Repeal Health Care Reform

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement regarding legislation she opposed in the House that would have repealed the Affordable Care Act:

"Because of health care reform, women are no longer discriminated against and charged higher premiums simply due to their gender. Millions of children with preexisting conditions will no longer be denied coverage by insurance companies that put profits before people's health.

"Now, Republicans want to turn back the clock on these lifesaving changes. Rather than wasting time on legislation that would take health insurance from New York's working families, we should be focused on measures to create jobs and strengthen our economy."
