WASHINGTON, D.C., March 24, 2017 | comments
U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA), a senior House Democrat who has been a leading voice in the push to protect the Affordable Care Act, released the following statement in response to the announcement by President Trump and Speaker Ryan that House Republicans have canceled the vote on the Affordable Health Care Act.

“Today is a victory for the millions of Americans who would have lost their healthcare and been forced to pay more for less coverage under Trumpcare. This bill was nothing but a tax cut for billionaires paid for by taking healthcare away from 24 million Americans. Today is a reminder that the real power in our democracy is with the people. Thank you to everyone in Massachusetts who made their voices heard. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.”
