Jul 18, 2017 Issues: Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, today released the following statement on the failed efforts of Senate Republicans to repeal and replace, or repeal, the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

“This welcome news that the Senate Republicans have failed in their efforts to repeal the ACA reflects the overwhelming response from our constituents. Like so many others, I have heard what health care means to families, people with disabilities, seniors, as well as to doctors and hospitals. It is a testament to the hard work that we put into the development of health care for over 20 million uninsured individuals.”

Rep. Levin was the Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee when the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010.
