“I knew crafting legislation to repair our healthcare system and ensure it operates more efficiently would not be easy, and we must take time to weigh all considerations. It remains critical that more be done to assist the most vulnerable in our communities, which is why I will work with my colleagues in favor of solutions that will improve this proposal. Our country deserves a healthcare system that puts patients first. That’s my goal.”

“The decision by House leadership to postpone a vote on reforming our healthcare system was necessary to ensure more time is available to understand the serious impacts this proposal will have on the American people. I have been and remain supportive of the positive, bipartisan aspects of ACA, such as prohibiting discrimination against women, allowing young Americans to remain on their parents’ plans, and guaranteeing coverage for those suffering from preexisting conditions. Throughout this entire process of working on healthcare reform, I have strongly advocated to improve the proposal through more support for disabled and elderly Americans and further expanded coverage by increasing tax credits for lower income Americans.
