WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Vice Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement in response to House Republicans pulling the TrumpCare bill due to lack of support:
“Today is a victory for 24 million Americans who will continue to have health care. It’s a victory for older Americans who won’t have to pay thousands more in premiums. It’s a victory for women who can continue to access critical birth control and lifesaving care. It’s a victory for people with pre-existing conditions who won’t be penalized for things beyond their control. It is a victory for all of us.
“If this bill comes to the House floor again, we will organize and defeat it. We know when we organize, we win. We cannot be complacent. This is just another fight in a series of battles. But today, we can say that we protected care for tens of millions of Americans across the country.”
