Press Release

The New Democrat Coalition Chair Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the health care bill that was pulled from the House Floor today: 

“It’s no surprise that the Republican health care bill was pulled from the House Floor by Speaker Ryan. Members on both sides of the aisle agree that we cannot deny Americans access to affordable health care. As the non-partisan CBO revealed, this bill would have taken away health care from millions of hard-working Americans,” said New Democrat Coalition Chair Jim Himes. “New Democrats will not stop fighting for access to affordable health care for their constituents and we will not shy away from creating space for their voices to be heard.”
