Yesterday, House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) and House Democrats held a hearing on the impacts of House Republicans’ legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act – which they refuse to hold hearings on themselves. House Republicans have passed the bill out of the House Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, and Budget Committees without having held a single hearing to discuss the impact of their bill. As the Budget Committee met to markup the bill, House Democrats convened a hearing at the same time in order to ask experts the questions the American people deserve answers to.

Over the course of two panels, House Democrats heard from three witnesses on the economic and coverage implications of the bill and five witnesses who provided patient and provider perspectives.
