Wyden Statement on Senate Passage of Partisan, Harmful Reconciliation Bill

WASHINGTON - Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement following Senate passage of a reconciliation bill that would repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act:

“The only good news about this flawed reconciliation bill is that it’s about to meet the President’s veto pen,” Wyden said. “The campaign against women’s health and the trumped up crusade against Planned Parenthood must come to an end. And the millions of families who have gotten high-quality, affordable health care, many for the first time, should not have to worry that an unconscionable act of Congress will take their insurance away and send their health care costs rocketing upwards.”
