Albany, NY – In response to Senate Republicans’ failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Karen Scharff, Executive Director of Citizen Action of New York, said:
“After weeks of pressure from voters across the country, Republican leaders have again failed at their goal of giving massive tax cuts to the super-rich by stripping affordable health coverage from working people. Access to health care should be a human right. That’s why millions of people attended town hall meetings, made phone calls, visited Representatives’ offices and shared their stories. The conversation on health care now needs to focus on what Americans want: access to affordable quality health care for everyone.
