Bennet Statement on Graham-Cassidy Bill

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement regarding the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act:

"I can't decide whether this is Groundhog Day or the definition of insanity: every attempt is worse than the last. This latest version cuts nearly $1 billion in funding to Colorado, sets up a nonsensical cliff in coverage, and puts patient protections at risk. The bipartisan process in our committee was making progress. Why would we abandon it now? This is exactly why Coloradans have lost so much faith in Washington."

Bennet is a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.
