Yarmuth Statement on Passage of House Republicans' Reckless Repeal Bill

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) released the following statement after House Republicans forced through health care repeal legislation that would strip health coverage from 24 million Americans, cut more than $800 billion from Medicaid, and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions:

“Now that House Republicans have recklessly rushed this legislation through without any hearings or analysis, I trust that the American people will come to the same conclusion that our nation’s doctors, nurses, hospitals, patient advocates, and seniors groups have all reached: this bill weakens health care protections for most Americans and leaves families worse off. I hope people will continue to make their voices heard and communicate their discontent to their Senators as this irresponsible legislation moves forward.”
