STATEMENT: Rep. Ro Khanna on Defeat of the ‘Skinny’ Health Care Repeal Bill
Washington, DC – Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) issued the following statement after the Senate defeated the so-called “skinny” health care repeal bill in the early morning hours:
“A disastrous bill to take away health care from millions of hard working people, and raise the costs for nearly everyone has been defeated. This is another powerful example of democracy at work and thank you to all who shared their stories, called my office, and raised their voices on how important the ACA is to them and their families. I will continue to advocate for improvements on ways people access and pay for health care, including Medicare for All.”
Rep. Khanna is a cosponsor of H.R.676 – The Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act – that was introduced in January by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (MI-13.)
