Kilmer explains his ‘no’ vote on repeal of Affordable Care Act

U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer said the U.S. House’s repeal of the Affordable Care Act marks more broken promises by President Trump.

Kilmer released the following statement after the House voted on the American Health Care Act:

“President Trump has repeatedly promised that any effort to replace the Affordable Care Act will lower costs, protect folks with pre-existing conditions, and won’t lead to a loss in coverage for folks who have it now,” said Kilmer, Washington’s 6th District congressman.

“The bill approved with the president’s support today breaks all those promises. I am committed to working with anyone, regardless of party, to make our healthcare system better. But I cannot support an effort that covers fewer people and costs people more.”
