Republican Congressman Ryan Costello's Response to Republican Health Care Law Passage

Your new healthcare provider if
Trumpcare becomes law
Here is the response I received today from Congressman Ryan Costello following the disgusting house vote for the abominable Trumpcare law that passed today, May 4, 2017. It is hideous irony it passed on the National Day of Prayer (something we'll all need now to prevent this travesty from becoming law, throwing tens of millions from the healthcare rolls and killing tens of thousands in the process.

From the Congressman:

COSTELLO STATEMENT ON HEALTHCARE VOTE
May 4, 2017
Washington, D.C.
– Rep. Ryan Costello today issued the following statement on the healthcare vote on the American Health Care Act:
“I pledged to my constituents that protections for those with pre-existing conditions without contingency and affordable access to coverage were benchmarks that needed to be satisfied. I cast a no vote on the legislation today, but as I continue to hear from constituents, doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers about their problematic experiences with the current system, I remain committed to healthcare reform.”
–Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06)

Well, that's somewhat encouraging ... but it's not nearly enough.

I think it says a lot that in a vote before the final vote not one single congressman or woman voted to have this abominable Trumpcare package apply to themselves. I think that tells us all we really need to know.
