PA GOP Chairman Statement on U.S. Senate Healthcare Bill

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio released the following statement on the United States Senate’s healthcare bill:
“Obamacare is in a death spiral. Even Democrats acknowledge its grave problems, yet they have offered no solutions of their own and refuse to participate in the process to replace this failed law or even offer their own plan. Sadly, in an effort to cover his left flank, Bob Casey has doubled down on this destructive healthcare system and embraced a strategy of obstruction. Pennsylvanian’s deserve better.
“On the other hand, Senate Republicans fulfilled their promise of bringing relief to struggling families. They have drafted a bill that increases access to quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans. Without immediate action to repeal and replace Obamacare, Pennsylvanians will continue to be saddled with higher costs, burdensome taxes, and fewer healthcare choice. It’s time for Bob Casey to end his obstruction and work with Republicans to fix our broken healthcare system.
