Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement after the Senate voted to start debate on the Republican health care bill:
“Republicans in the Senate are moving forward on repealing the Affordable Care Act with no idea what comes next. People’s lives are on the line—to proceed in this manner is the height of irresponsibility.
“This is a gut-check moment for our country. Over the coming days, senators need to decide whether taking health coverage away from millions of Americans and devastating our health care safety net is what they were sent here to do.
“Democrats will do all we can to defeat this monstrous effort and make sure the public knows exactly what’s happening here. To my colleagues who are undecided on how they will ultimately vote, make no mistake, the final vote will be among the most important you will ever take.”
