Tom Perez on Delay of Republicans’ Attempt to Repeal Health Care

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Senator McConnell announced he would not hold a vote this week on the Graham-Cassidy-Heller bill:

“Health care is a right. This bill was wrong. But instead of listening to the people they represent, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and congressional Republicans tried yet again to take health care away from millions of families. This bill should have never been proposed, let alone come close to a vote.

“Thanks to millions of calls, emails, and letters from ordinary Americans, Republicans have been unable to accomplish their disastrous agenda. Now it’s time for Trump and Republicans in Congress to stop playing games with people’s lives and start working with Democrats to ensure that health care is a right for all.”
