Larsen Statement on Graham-Cassidy Bill

Sep 27, 2017 Issues: Health Care, Seniors, Social Services

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) today released the following statement after Senate Republicans announced that the Graham-Cassidy bill, also known as Trumpcare, does not have sufficient votes to pass the Senate before the September 30th deadline.

For the sixth time this Congress, Congressional Republicans have terrified, enraged, and ultimately mobilized millions of Americans by threatening to destroy the American health care system. And once again, the American people rose to the occasion and succeeded in stopping Trumpcare. Now is the time for Republicans and Democrats to come together behind the bipartisan marketplace stabilization effort, led by Senators Alexander and Murray, to improve the Affordable Care Act and create solutions that will lower health care costs, increase quality, and expand coverage.”
