Ros-Lehtinen Statement on Her Intention To Vote NO on Revised AHCA

“After studying the revised bill, I intend to vote NO. This plan still does not effectively address the needs of my South Florida constituents.” 

Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R – FL) made the following statement on her intention to vote NO on the revised AHCA. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“After studying the revised bill, I intend to vote NO. This plan still does not effectively address the needs of my South Florida constituents.  The proposed changes to this bill would leave too many of my constituents with pre-existing conditions paying more for health insurance coverage and too many of them will even be left without any coverage at all. Additionally, this new plan still includes painful cuts to Medicaid that will make it more difficult to care for patients with high costs of coverage due to special needs or chronic diseases. Unfortunately, the bill does not deliver what my district needs and until a plan that helps South Florida is proposed, I will continue to side with my constituents in opposing this plan.”
