Van Hollen comments on Health Care vote delay

June 27th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Today U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement on the decision to postpone the vote on the Senate Republican health care bill. Senator Van Hollen spoke at a rally immediately after that news broke, and you can watch his remarks here:

 

“It’s not over until it’s over – and it’s not dead until it’s dead. The fact that Senate Republicans have delayed the vote on their health care bill is welcome news, but it means we have to redouble our efforts to fight it over the July 4th holiday and beyond. I urge my colleagues to go home and listen to their constituents – the children, working families, and seniors who would be devastated if the Republican plan became law. I hope they’ll come back ready to work with us in the light of day to improve our health care system, not destroy it. But we won’t stand for any bill that strips health care away from tens of millions of people in Maryland and across the country and gives tax breaks to the very wealthy and special interests.”
