Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC –Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the early-morning defeat of the Senate “skinny” health care legislation:

“The defeat of last night's health care bill is the result of the collective outcry of millions against plans that do not present real solutions. One of the first demands of medicine is ‘primum non nocere’: first, do no harm. Last night, the Senate lived up to that standard and gave us the opportunity to work in a bipartisan manner on policies that will actually expand coverage, increase care, and reduce costs.”
