House Republicans have voted nearly 50 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would raise prescription drug costs for millions of seniors, allow insurance companies to deny coverage to 129 million Americans with preexisting conditions – including 17 million children – and to increase costs on middle class families.

“For every statistic, there are millions of seniors who are saving thousands on prescription drugs, countless Americans who won’t face bankruptcy because of health care, and millions of sick kids who are guaranteed coverage — and those are the people Republicans are hurting with their obsessive repeal efforts,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Not only would Republicans’ repeal hurt millions of middle class Americans, they refuse to put forward an agenda to solve these problems. The Republican repeal takes away coverage, hikes rates, and sends too many Americans back into a broken system where insurance companies were free to do whatever they wanted, at the cost of middle class families. The costs of Republican repeal are simply too high — and these are the faces of those who will hurt the most.”
