Sen. Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement on Congressional Republicans’ decision to withdraw the American Health Care Act:

“For the past few weeks, Republicans have been fighting with each other to see how many people they can kick off insurance rolls, and how they can raise healthcare costs for our kupuna, working families and women in order to provide more tax cuts for the wealthy. Today, after seven years of vowing to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the crowning achievement in a crusade to serve Republicans’ radical anti-government agenda—passing TrumpCare—failed.

“This is a good day for the people in Hawai‘i and across the country who have benefitted from the Affordable Care Act, but we must remain vigilant. I’ll continue to stand strong and speak out against the president and his Congressional cronies’ efforts to roll back the progress we’ve made.”
