Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statement.
“This vote tells you everything you need to know about the Republican Party. Without even knowing what’s in it, the House GOP passed a bill that could strip health coverage from over 20 million people and eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions. In short, this legislation will eliminate access to care for working and middle-class families just to give another massive tax cut to the wealthiest individuals and corporations. This bill is a disgrace, and make no mistake: Republicans will be measured by the passage of this bill, up and down the ticket in 2018.”
