Congressman Garamendi’s Statement on Latest Effort to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City) voted against the latest effort by Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act and defund Planned Parenthood.
“Today, for the 62nd time, the Republican Majority voted to take health insurance away from roughly 20 million Americans. The only difference is, this time the bill goes to the President's desk for a well deserved veto,” said Congressman Garamendi. “It's hard to imagine the horrible impact this bill would have on the 68,000 people in the counties I represent who have health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act.”
