Hoyer Statement on Senate Rejection of TrumpCare Bill
WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Senate’s TrumpCare bill failed on the Floor last night, with nine Republican Senators voting against it:
"The Senate's strong rejection of Senator McConnell's TrumpCare bill ought to signal that it's time for Republicans' partisan games on health care to come to an end. Instead of pushing a partisan bill that would take the benefits of the Affordable Care Act away from tens of millions of Americans, Republicans ought to sit down with Democrats to come up with bipartisan ways to improve the law and ensure it benefits everyone. I urge Senators and Members of the House alike to embrace the hard work of compromise and reject the bitter partisanship that has led only to gridlock."
