Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after Senate Republicans announced that they will not bring Graham-Cassidy to a vote on the Senate floor: 
 
“Today, Leader McConnell said he will not hold a vote on Graham-Cassidy Trumpcare, but we must remain vigilant to protect Americans’ health care. 

“The American people overwhelmingly made their voices heard to defeat this deadly bill and to defend their loved ones.  Now, Republicans must rejoin the Alexander-Murray talks and work productively with Democrats to improve and update the Affordable Care Act.  

“Speaker Ryan must initiate a bipartisan process in the House in order to expand affordable health care for all Americans.  I also call upon the President to join a bipartisan effort to stabilize the marketplaces and assist families enrolling in coverage this year.”
