American Bridge Response to Speaker Ryan’s Empty Rhetoric

American Bridge Vice President Shripal Shah released the following statement responding to Speaker Ryan’s remarks on the healthcare debate and the Senate’s “skinny” repeal bill: 

“No one should think Speaker Ryan is acting in good faith. He can’t be trusted and his slippery statement reveals his true intentions. He’s leaving himself an out and in the end, no one should be surprised when the House sends the President a reckless bill that results in millions losing coverage.”

“This healthcare ‘debate’ is going to go down in history as the worst display of partisan politics our country has ever seen. Senate Republicans should do the right thing for once and vote against this measure. Nothing else is acceptable, too much is at risk.”
