Esty Statement on Collapse of Senate Health Care Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) today released the following statement:
“The GOP health care bill failed for a simple reason: it would have hurt millions of Americans, and the American people knew it. But I didn't run for Congress to sit back and cheer when things fail. I ran for Congress to get things done. There are real problems in our health care system that we need to fix. Let's work together on ways to lower premiums and deductibles, reduce drug costs, and expand access to quality care. The time is now for bipartisan action.
“Clearly, the solution is not to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with nothing. That would create utter chaos, and risk the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans. We can and we must do better.”
