Congresswoman Beatty Votes “No” On Trumpcare

House Republicans push through bill dismantling Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Republicans passed the American Health Care Act, H.R. 1628 (Trumpcare) by a vote of 217-213. Immediately after the vote, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement:

“Today, I stood with countless Americans everywhere who oppose Trumpcare by voting against this misguided bill that was hastily-written. Trumpcare will be a prescription for disaster for more than 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions—not to mention seniors, women, people with disabilities, students with disabilities and working families. Trumpcare will strip healthcare away from at least 24 million Americans, including nearly one million Ohioans, and provides a totally unnecessary tax cut to the super wealthy. The American people spoke out—healthcare should be a right for all, not just the privileged few.”
