Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Senator Lindsey Graham promised that Republicans will make repealing the Affordable Care Act a top priority if Republicans win the White House in 2020:

“Again and again, Republicans make perfectly clear what GOP control of Washington means for families: soaring costs, worse coverage and the end of life-saving protections for people with pre-existing conditions.  Americans’ quality, affordable health care will never be safe with Republicans in power.

“From Day One, the Trump Administration and Senate Republicans have sabotaged hard-working families’ health care.  Republicans continue to work to push families into shoddy junk plans and spike their health costs, while also fighting in the courts to take away not only protections for people with pre-existing conditions, but every last protection and guarantee of affordable health care.

“In stark contrast, House Democrats have been relentless in our fight for families’ health care, sending the Senate ten bills to lower health costs and prescription drug prices, reverse the GOP’s health care sabotage and strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions.  The American people elected a Democratic Majority that would fight For The People – and that is exactly what we will continue to do.”
