Bennet Statement Urging Bipartisan Health Care Bill

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement after three Republican Senators announced that they would not support a procedural vote to consider the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without a replacement:

"It's past time for a bipartisan approach that lowers costs and improves outcomes. Cutting taxes for special interests while slashing funds for Medicaid does literally nothing but make our challenges in health care worse. We should turn our attention to competition, transparency, and affordability so that we can create a system that serves all Coloradans."
