Protect Our Care Statement on Alexander-Murray Announcement

In response to Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) announcing their legislation with 24 bipartisan co-sponsors on the Senate floor today, Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“The Alexander-Murray bipartisan health care legislation gained significant momentum with today’s announcement that this bill has strong bipartisanship support — vastly more than the partisan Senate repeal efforts that never mustered even 50 votes,” said Woodhouse. “It’s time for all Republicans to get behind this bipartisan approach that stabilizes the market. We’ve said all along that a bipartisan approach to health care was the only approach to health care, and after repeated failed attempts at repeal, today’s announcement is a clear signal to President Trump, Senator McConnell and other Republicans that it is time to abandon partisan repeal. If not, the consequences will be on them.”
