Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Wyman Statements on Failure of Trumpcare in the U.S. Senate

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman today released the following statements in response to the failure of Trumpcare in the U.S. Senate:

Governor Malloy said, “Tonight’s vote on the so-called ‘skinny repeal’ bill was a sickening attempt to score cheap political points at the expense of American men, women and children. Senate Republicans have failed to produce a single proposal that would improve the American healthcare system. Instead, time and time again they have put forth destabilizing proposals that would result in millions more uninsured, higher premiums with less comprehensive coverage, and eviscerating coverage for our most vulnerable residents. Republicans in the House and Senate must immediately stop this attack on healthcare and instead work with the nation’s governors – both Democrats and Republicans – to stabilize the market and make improvements to the current system that will benefit all Americans, rather than needlessly putting millions of lives at risk.”

Lt. Governor Wyman said, “As I’ve said before, the ACA is a strong start – millions more Americans now have insurance coverage and better access to healthcare. In Connecticut, we have engaged patients, providers, and others in ongoing work to bring down costs and improve access and outcomes. This is helping our residents better afford coverage and care – but this work is far from done, here and throughout the country. Vote after vote to repeal the ACA has failed. The time has come for our federal partners to support the ACA and states’ efforts on healthcare reform.”
