Congresswoman Bustos Statement after Washington Republicans Cancel their TrumpCare Vote

WASHINGTON – Today, after Washington Republicans canceled their long promised and delayed TrumpCare vote, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos issued the following statement:

“The defeat of TrumpCare is a major victory for our children, our seniors and hardworking families across our nation,” said Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. “More than 97 percent of the individuals who contacted my office voiced their strong objection to TrumpCare and I thank all of them for making their voices heard. The American people sent a clear message that no one should be one accident away from bankruptcy, older Americans shouldn’t have to pay an age tax and hardworking families shouldn’t pay more for less coverage. However, our work is not finished. Next week, I hope we can come together and start working across the aisle on real solutions to reduce out of pocket expenses and lower the price of prescription drugs.”
