House GOP Leadership Withdraws ACA Replacement Bill

In response to the decision by House Republican leadership to pull the American Health Care Act, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement

By - Mar 24th, 2017 04:32 pm

“Today, after days of Republican infighting, Speaker Paul Ryan moved to withdraw his Affordable Care Act replacement bill from consideration. The defeat of the American Health Care Act underscores the power of civic participation. This decision not only represents a victory for the seniors, children, and working- and middle-class Americans who otherwise would have lost their health coverage, but for everyone who exercised their civic duty in opposing such a misguided and dangerous proposal.

“Americans from across the political divide inundated congressional offices with their messages of support for the very provisions that make the Affordable Care Act so vital including free preventive services to all women and ending insurance denials based on pre-existing conditions. Today’s extraordinary events prove that their words did not fall on deaf ears and that democracy truly works when you work it.

“As we take a moment to acknowledge the success of our shared determination and resolve, let us recognize that this fight is far from over. I have no doubt that congressional Republicans and President Trump will stop at nothing to dismantle the progress achieved during President Obama’s tenure using the levers of the administration to undermine his landmark legislation. With this reality in mind, I call on every American to remain vigilant and engaged. Our lives quite literally depend on it.”
