Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Richard Neal (D-MA) today released the following statement after Senate Republicans unveiled a revised version of their health care bill:

“This revised version of Senate Republicans’ health care bill is nothing but more of the same harmful and outdated policies that the American people overwhelmingly don’t want, Republicans don’t want, and virtually the entire medical community doesn’t want. This legislation still takes away insurance from millions of Americans, dramatically undermines protections for pre-existing conditions, imposes an age tax on seniors, hurts local hospitals, and makes hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to Medicaid, harming families, children, and seniors. Democrats are eager for Republicans to join us in finding ways to work together to actually improve health care in this country. The American people have been calling on us to come together and build on the success of the Affordable Care Act. It’s time to listen to our constituents and get to work.”
