Tester Statement on House Health Care Bill

(Big Sandy, Mont.)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement after the House of Representatives pulled the American Health Care Act:

“This was a bad bill for Montanans because not only did it fail to address the cost of health care, it forced seniors to unfairly pay more for health insurance and took money away from Medicare. Folks in Washington can’t keep playing politics with Montanans’ health, and I am going to continue working with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to bring down the cost of health care and increase access to affordable insurance for all Montanans.”

Tester has held over a dozen health care listening sessions and town hall meetings in Montana to discuss the Affordable Care Act and American Health Care Act.
