Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after a vote on Trumpcare was pulled from consideration by Speaker Paul Ryan.

“This is a victory for everyone who contacted Congressional offices to voice their opposition to this bill. These calls paid off and showed President Trump and Speaker Ryan that you cannot ram a bill through Congress while ignoring the concerns of the American people. Thanks to the grassroots efforts of people across the country, we stopped President Trump and Speaker Ryan’s attempt to kick 24 million people off their health insurance.

“Pulling Trumpcare from consideration today marks a major legislative defeat for President Trump and Congressional Republicans and a tremendous win for the American people whose voices were heard loud and clear in the Capitol.”

As of this afternoon, Rep. Pocan’s office received over 7,369 calls and emails in opposition to Trumpcare and only 54 in support of the bill. That amounts to about 136 times more people against this bill than in favor of it.
