Statement Regarding the Graham-Cassidy Legislation to Repeal Obamacare

Rebecca Novick, Director of the Civil Health Law Unit at The Legal Aid Society, released the following statement tonight on the Graham-Cassidy Legislation to repeal Obamacare.

“We are relieved that the Senate will not be voting on disastrous legislation that would dismantle our health care system and strip insurance coverage from millions of Americans. This bill would have also had a punitive impact for New York and other states that have been most effective in expanding coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We hope this is the last chapter in a fanatical campaign to repeal ACA without a semblance of a reasonable alternative.”
