McGovern Blasts House GOP Bill Taking Healthcare Away From 22 Million Americans

Thursday, January 07, 2016

 

Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern led debate for House Democrats on Wednesday and blasted the latest attempt by House Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

"We are starting the New Year by debating a bill, that if it ever became law, would put the healthcare of 22 million Americans in jeopardy and further restrict women’s access to vital healthcare services," McGovern said on the bill. 

McGovern continued to blast the House Republicans over their attempt at this bill. 

“This is yet another blatant political move by Republicans to appease their right-wing base with no thought for the millions of Americans this bill would hurt," said McGovern.  "Not only have House Republicans done nothing to expand healthcare for the American people, they have actually consistently tried to undermine health access for millions of Americans."

Starting 2016 Off Wrong

Congressman McGovern expressed his disappointment with the way things are starting off in 2016. McGovern said that he thought things would be different with Speaker Ryan. 

"When Speaker Ryan took the gavel last fall, there was so much talk about a new chapter and fresh ideas. Instead, we’re starting 2016 with more of the stale, and politically-motivated bills we’ve become accustomed to in this Republican-controlled Congress," McGovern added. 

McGovern concluded "We’re starting the New Year not by working in a bipartisan way to do the people’s business. Unfortunately, we’re starting the New Year debating the same old, same old; bills that put politics ahead of people. And that’s truly sad.”
