Today, Representative Tim Walz (D-MN) release the following statement after House Republicans brought forward a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act--for the 37th time. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office found that repealing the Affordable Care Act would increase the deficit by $109 billion.
"Congress should be working to pass a budget, grow jobs, and expand opportunities for hardworking middle class families. Unfortunately, House Republicans are wasting more of the taxpayers' time and money on yet another vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act and patient protections for students, women, seniors, and the middle class that come along with it.
"This is unacceptable. We should be working together to find real solutions to the problems we face, not taking more side-show political votes on bills that have no chance of becoming law."
