Washington, D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Senate defeated the so-called “skinny” Trumpcare amendment:

“The American people have spoken loud and clear against the higher costs and monstrous cruelty of Trumpcare.  Now, Congress must finally pivot to the long overdue bipartisan work to update and improve the Affordable Care Act and to continue to lower Americans’ health costs.

“The collapse of Trumpcare is a tribute to the power of the American people to organize, mobilize and make their voices heard.  As ever, Democrats extend the hand of friendship to our Republican colleagues to join us in forging constructive progress to improve working families’ health care.”
