U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act in a strictly partisan vote yesterday.

“House Republicans rammed through a bill that would strip at least 24 million Americans of their healthcare and raise the costs for those with pre-existing conditions. It’s shameful and immoral. But it can stop here. The Senate has the opportunity to walk away from Trumpcare and instead work in a bipartisan way to improve people’s healthcare, not take it away.”
