Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on the Senate vote to reject the “skinny repeal” TrumpCare amendment:
“Millions of Americans' healthcare was on the line last night. The American people knew what was at stake and because people raised their voices and shared their stories, the Senate rejected TrumpCare.
“I've heard from so many of my constituents about the importance of access to care in their lives – from the mom of a son who has disabilities, to the family whose grandparent is in a nursing home, to the young woman who got an unexpected disease diagnosis and will carry a pre-existing condition with her for the rest of her life.
“We cannot roll back all the progress we've made for these families. Now is the time to come together to make improvements to our healthcare system to ensure that it works for everyone.”
