Fighting Back: “Democrats will never stop fighting to ensure health care is a right for all.”


The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Congresswoman Katherine Clark of Massachusetts.

(Rep. Clark highlighted the one year anniversary of the House Republicans casting their votes for the monstrosity of Trumpcare which would have had devastating impacts on the American people.)

“Right after voting to take health care away from millions of Americans, Republicans boarded party buses in front of the Capitol and drove to the White House for a champagne toast.

“While they were celebrating, families across the country began to panic about how they would care for themselves and their loved ones.” […]

“The Trumpcare repeal bill would have caused soaring costs; pushed 23 million Americans off health coverage; shredded protections for those with pre-existing conditions; and imposed a crushing age tax on older Americans. This vote caused anxiety and fear. […]

“We know the security of the American family starts with the ability to access affordable, quality health care. No one should have to choose between the health of their family and their ability to put food on the table or make a mortgage payment.

“Democrats will never stop fighting to ensure health care is a right for all, not a privilege for a few.”
