Americans have resoundingly rejected the heartless Republican attempts to take away health care coverage and raise costs on millions of seniors and hard-working families. Now that this cruel effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate last night, it's time to work across the aisle to strengthen it.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement today after the “skinny repeal” effort was defeated on the Senate floor early this morning:

“Americans have resoundingly rejected the heartless Republican attempts to take away health care coverage and raise costs on millions of seniors and hard-working families. Now that this cruel effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate last night, it’s time to work across the aisle to strengthen it. President Trump’s desire to undercut and starve the ACA is a sinister political ploy that will cause real financial and personal pain for millions of Americans, and it is absolutely unconscionable. Members of Congress must swiftly take a responsible leadership role in improving the ACA. It is my hope that we can work with our Republican colleagues to improve the Affordable Care Act and ensure that access to quality, affordable health care remains a right for all Americans.”
