Black Caucus React TO Senate Health Care Vote

 

WASHINGTON  – Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver, II released the following statement on the Senate Health Care Vote:

 

“It comes as no surprise that the attempt to repeal Health Care Reform was rejected by the Senate today. It was a waste of time. Instead of focusing on creating jobs, their focus turned to putting insurance companies back in charge. Repealing the Affordable Care Act would negatively impact all Americans, but especially people of color. Almost every aspect of the Affordable Care Act positively impacts the African American community: from protecting those with preexisting conditions, ensuring dependent coverage, providing vital preventive services and care, making health care affordable for small businesses, and increasing Medicare benefit coverage. It is time that we all focus on what is most important, putting Americans back to work.”
