Welch Statement on Withdrawal of Healthcare Bill from House Floor Vote

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) released the following statement:

"I am relieved that the Trump-Ryan so-called "repeal and replace" bill will never see the light of day. It failed today because it was unmasked for what it really was: a massive tax cut for the wealthiest Americans disguised as health care reform. To pay for it, 24 million Americans would have lost their healthcare, Vermont's community hospitals would have taken an enormous financial hit, and premiums for working seniors would have soared. I hope the ashes of this bill will lead to a collaborative effort to make health care more affordable and accessible for every American. It's time to roll up our sleeves and improve the Affordable Care Act."
