Wyden Statement on House Passage of Trumpcare

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement after the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, which will now be sent to the Senate:

“This bill is a staggering reversal of Republican health care promises that has been rammed through the House by buying off members and brazenly misleading the public,” Wyden said. “Bottom line, the House has voted to turn back the clock to the days when health care was reserved for the healthy and wealthy.”

“If my Senate Republican colleagues don’t declare this dangerous, partisan effort dead on arrival, I will fight at every turn to protect people from the harm it will cause.”
