Deep Sran Statement on Senate Delay of Affordable Care Act Repeal Vote
Congressional candidate calls for further action against "disastrous" plan
ASHBURN -- Teacher, tech entrepreneur, and candidate for Virginia's 10th Congressional District Deep Sran released the following statement today in response to Senate Republicans delaying the vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act:
"The fact that the Senate chose to delay its vote today on its reckless version of an Obamacare repeal tells us two things: (1) the protesting voices of citizens in the Commonwealth and around the nation are making an impact, and (2) this fight is far from over.
"Let's be clear about the stakes for the residents of Virginia's 10th District. Both the Senate bill currently under consideration and the callous House bill that Barbara Comstock was on the fence about until the last possible moment -- despite its threat to the 331,000 people in this district with pre-existing conditions -- would deeply harm our neighbors and families while offering massive tax cuts to the wealthy.
"Leadership means defending our communities and standing up for those who can't stand up for themselves. As Congressman, I will fight to ensure every American has access to quality affordable health care -- and as a citizen, I'll continue to stand with the many Virginians who are speaking out and stepping up to oppose this harmful legislation."
