STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL MAURA HEALEY ON THE HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT

STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL MAURA HEALEY ON THE HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT

BOSTON – Today, Attorney General Maura Healey issued the following statement:

“In Massachusetts, we believe that everyone should have access to health care. Clearly President Trump and Speaker Ryan disagree. The Republican bill would make it harder for sick people to access treatment and for healthy people to stay well. It would jeopardize access to reproductive health care for women. And in the midst of the national opioid epidemic, it would cut vital addiction and mental health services. The House has ignored the concerns of health care experts, doctors, nurses, and the millions of Americans who depend on the Affordable Care Act. I urge the U.S. Senate to reject this bill.”
