“With today’s vote, Republicans just made the U.S. Senate a death panel. If repeal happens, lives will be lost. Americans will be devastated.

Families with pre-existing conditions, children with disabilities on Medicaid, Americans struggling with opioid addiction – all have so much at stake. This is cruel, it’s shameful, and it’s sad.”
