U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement regarding Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to not hold a vote on the Graham-Cassidy version of Trumpcare:

“Courageous Americans called, spoke out and protested the Republicans’ latest appalling attempt to destroy our health care system, and together we beat it back – once again. Even though we have won this critical victory, we can’t stop now. We must keep the pressure on Leader McConnell, Speaker Ryan and the President to embrace the bipartisan effort to update and improve the Affordable Care Act.

No more legislative schemes to weaken the ACA, or allowing this law to be starved by neglect and inaction. The time is now to stabilize ACA marketplaces and help families enroll in coverage this year. Millions of families, seniors and veterans are counting on us to protect and expand affordable health care for everyone. If we stay united, we can do it. We must do it."
