Hoyer: Republicans' 'Repeal-and-Delay' Plan Ought to be Called 'Repeal-and-Deny'

Mr. Speaker, I rise out of a deep concern, not only for the thirty million Americans who will lose access to health coverage and the tens of millions of others who will see their costs rise if Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement.

PQ VOTE NOW: Will Republicans Stand Up for Democracy?

Wanted to make sure you’re all watching the PQ vote right now.  If it fails, Democrats will bring up legislation to form an independent commission to investigate Russia’s hacking of the election. This vote will show the American people whether or not Republicans are willing to stand up for American democracy and work to uncover the full scope of Russia’s interference. Defending our government institutions should not be a partisan issue – we’ll see if Republicans agree.
