Torres Statement on Withdrawal of Healthcare Bill

March 24, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) issued the following statement following the decision by House Republican leadership to withdraw their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“Today is a victory for the millions of Americans who rely on the Affordable Care Act, in particular the 300,000 residents of the 35th congressional district who rely on Medi-Cal and the thousands who were able to gain insurance for the first time thanks to the ACA. Putting at risk the healthcare of millions of Americans just to score a political win was childish and irresponsible. The American people deserve better.  I hope Republicans will now go back to the drawing board, put their partisanship aside, and work with Democrats  to fix our healthcare system to lower cost and expand access to care.”
