Washington, DC – In response to the House passage of the dangerous and economically unstable Republican health care plan, which would repeal the Affordable Care Act and cost millions of Americans the affordable health insurance coverage they need, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) issued the following statement:

“Today, is a sad day for the future of the American health care system. Republicans voted to pass a bill that would take health care from millions of people across the country, including 263,000 constituents of mine who have health insurance because of the Affordable Care Act.

“This Republican-led bill will not only jeopardize Americans’ health care benefits, it will also have a serious impact on our local economies, which have greatly benefited from expanded coverage. In my district alone, it would eliminate 4,000 jobs.

“Health care should not be a partisan issue and I’m deeply disappointed that my colleagues across the aisle have turned this basic right into a battle between the two parties.”

  1. Healthcare is not a right, pay for your own Healthcare insurance like all other insurance. Democrats and Obama lied and robbed working class. They said you can keep your doctor and your plan but millions lost both and started pay thousands in premiums and deductibles while being penalised for not paying it. While some lazy bum gets better and cheaper healthcare on other hard working peoples back. Socialism is a failure, just look at Venezuela.

    • Just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t make it fake. Press releases are not fake because an elected official actually stated it and issued it.

      • Democrats are liars and everything out their mouth is fake. So what he means is by you posting this, you’re buying into the fake news. Makes sense to me!

  2. McNerney, you need to crawl back into your liberal hole, I am sick and tired of paying more for something I have worked hard for my MEDICAL INSURANCE. Why don’t you try to control the medical industry and cap our costs. Oops that won’t work, your to far up the Unions hole to do that.

  3. This action is another attempt to put more money in the pockets of the 1%. Money which will come out of your pockets. The Rethugs have a lot of nerve going to the White House to celebrate. They got to first base and they think they hit a home run. Idiots. All of them.

    Democrats serve the people, Republicans serve themselves.
