Butterfield Statement on Republican Motion to Proceed Vote on ACA Repeal

WASHINGTON, DCCongressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) issued the following statement regarding Senate Republicans’ actions today on healthcare:


“Today’s vote was not about America’s health care, but about scoring a political win for the Trump Administration.


“It is a total disappointment that, rather than put politics aside and work in a bipartisan fashion to bring down costs and ensure more Americans have access to care, Republicans eagerly continue to push a plan that will weaken our economy, leave working Americans with higher medical costs, and jeopardize care for up to half a million North Carolinians who gained coverage since the Affordable Care Act was implemented.


“Each vote cast today to put Trumpcare on the Floor is a vote to jeopardize the health care of millions of families.”
