CHC Chair Statement on Republicans' Failed Health Care Bill

Mar 24, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham released the following statement following today's failed attempt by Republicans to pass President Trump’s health care legislation:

“This isn’t a time to gloat. It’s time to get to work because Republicans have played politics for the past seven years instead of putting consumers, patients and families first. They have engaged in health care malpractice, and people are really struggling. The Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect, but Republicans are responsible for not allowing us to negotiate prescription drug prices, not holding insurance companies accountable for high administrative costs, and not funding ACA provisions that pay for sicker patients. Maybe now they will work in earnest with Democrats to do the right thing for American families.”


The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), founded in December 1976, is organized as a Congressional Member organization, governed under the Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives. The CHC is dedicated to voicing and advancing, through the legislative process, issues affecting Hispanics in the United States, Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories.
