Luján On Postponed House Vote On Trumpcare

WASHINGTON, D.C.  U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) issued the following statement after House Republicans delayed a high profile vote on the Republican health care repeal bill when the legislation failed to gain sufficient support to pass the House:
“President Trump and Congressional Republicans hatched a bill in a back room and tried to slip it through the House with no hearings before anyone – even members of their own party – were able to understand the details,” Lujan said. “And when those details did come out – the fact that this bill strips health insurance from millions of Americans, increases the cost of premiums and deductibles, and creates a crushing age tax on Americans over 50 – President Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans got caught pulling a fast one on the American people.”
