Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) today issued the following statement after the decision to pull the American Health Care Act (AHCA) from floor consideration:
“Since the start of this process, I have said that we must keep what works in the current healthcare system and fix what doesn’t. Pulling the legislation from the floor reveals that there is no Republican consensus on replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As such, it is incumbent upon those of us in Congress to find incremental improvements and reforms to the ACA – hopefully with bipartisan support – which will lower costs and increase healthcare access for all Americans. I recognize that the partisan divide over healthcare needs to be overcome if we are to truly fix what isn’t working in the ACA. I stand ready to do so."
