WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today released the following statement on the Congressional Republicans’ plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“The Republican establishment in Washington is using their power to put politics ahead of progress for American families.

“For the last seven years, Congressional Republicans have tried to take away people’s health care and promised a replacement plan that they have never been able to deliver. And now, all they are offering is chaos.

“Instead of working on bipartisan reforms to fix and improve the Affordable Care Act, they are putting insurance companies back in charge of health care, ripping health care away from millions of Americans, and raising premiums. This is the first step towards higher costs, fewer people with health insurance coverage, and more uncertainty for American families.”
