Linda Sánchez Votes to Strengthen the ACA
Washington, DC—Rep. Linda T. Sánchez (CA-38), member of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement on House passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act.
“Health care is top of mind for families across the country and for good reason. We are living in a public health crisis that less than a year ago seemed like something only possible in a movie,” said Rep. Sánchez. “Instead of leading our country through this pandemic, the Trump administration is urging the Supreme Court to overturn the law that provides nearly 4 million Californians with health care.
“As they try to strip away coverage for millions, House Democrats are working to make quality, affordable health care a reality for even more Americans. The legislation we passed today lowers premiums, cuts prescription drug costs, and expands coverage to millions, including DACA recipients. Instead of dismantling our health care system and removing protections for those with pre-existing conditions, this bill enhances and expands it at a time when it could not be more important.”
