Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the failure of the Republican American Health Care Act (AHCA) to even come to a vote in the House, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement:

"Our country won today because a bill with disastrous consequences was stopped in its tracks. Countless Americans made their voices heard as a bill that could have devastated our economy and left more than 24 million people without health care nearly came to the floor. Because of their efforts, it never received a vote."

"As we move forward, I hope to work with all my colleagues, including Republicans, to mend, not end, the Affordable Care Act. We need real solutions to improve the lot of working families and I will continue to work to develop them."
