Democrats Are Expanding Access to Health Care, Republicans Are Taking it Away

In response to the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson health care bill released today and the efforts by Senate and House Democrats to expand access to health care, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:

“Once again, Republicans in Congress are ignoring the will of the American people. Like each of their previous attempts, this bill would sabotage our health care system, gut Medicaid, increase costs, and take health care away from millions of Americans.

“Democrats believe health care is a right, not a privilege. And as Republicans try to take health care away from working families, Senate and House Democrats are working together to expand coverage for all Americans. It’s time for Republicans to listen to the people they represent and join Democrats in our efforts to improve our health care system for the American people.”
