Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), released the following statement in response to the latest Senate Republican Healthcare bill:

 

“Different draft, same effect: devastating cuts to Medicaid; millions will lose healthcare; and millions more will see an increase in costs and fewer benefits,” said Rep. Richmond.  “The Senate Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act was bad before and it is still bad today.  They should focus less on trying to  get their politics “right” and spend more time trying to address the real healthcare concerns of hardworking American families.”
