The resistance and compassion won out. It is now more clear than ever that the American people do not want less health care coverage at a higher cost, all so millionaires and billionaires can get huge tax breaks. President Trump now says he will ïallow Obamacare to fail', rather than work with Democrats to update and improve it. I will continue to stand with the millions of caring, conscientious and responsible Americans who bravely banded together to beat back this political savagery.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement regarding the latest Trumpcare failure in the Senate:

“The resistance and compassion won out. It is now more clear than ever that the American people do not want less health care coverage at a higher cost, all so millionaires and billionaires can get huge tax breaks.  President Trump now says he will ‘allow Obamacare to fail', rather than work with Democrats to update and improve it. I will continue to stand with the millions of caring, conscientious and responsible Americans who bravely banded together to beat back this political savagery.

We must make health care reform about improving Americans' health, not hurting millions of people with mean-spirited legislation that will leave millions without health care coverage. It is now time for Democrats and Republicans to come together to address the problems with the Affordable Care Act. The American people have made it clear that they believe access to quality, affordable health care should remain a right and not return to a time when it was a privilege only for those who could afford it."
