Pelosi Spokesman Statement on House Republicans' Latest Legislative Effort to Undermine Health Reform

Washington, D.C. – Drew Hammill, spokesman for Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, released this statement following the release of a memo by House Republican Leader Eric Cantor announcing legislation targeting the Affordable Care Act for the House Floor next week:

“It is clear that the New Year has brought no change in heart for House Republicans.  They continue to remain intent on undermining or repealing the Affordable Care Act at every turn, and that effort even extends to scaring their constituents from obtaining health coverage. 

“Six million Americans began enjoying the security of health coverage this week, including 2.1 million Americans who have enrolled in a private health insurance plan through health insurance marketplaces.  It's time for Republicans to drop the partisan and ideological games, and work with Democrats to strengthen and build upon this historic law.”
