Cantwell Statement on Failed Vote to Repeal the Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) released the following statement following the failure of Affordable Care Act repeal legislation on the Senate floor:

“Tonight, the voices of millions of Americans were heard. Your stories, your phone calls, your emails, your advocacy, and all of your hard work paid off. Tonight, we were able to protect Medicaid, protect the Affordable Care Act, and preserve coverage for millions of Americans.

“Now we must chart a path to progress.  We need to find bipartisan solutions, particularly in the individual health insurance market, to drive down costs, increase access, and innovate in the health care delivery system.”
