Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman  Johnson released the following statement in response to the canceled vote on the GOP Healthcare Plan.

“Today is a victory for the millions of people that would lose health coverage if the Affordable Care Act was to be repealed.  With an outpouring of correspondence to Representatives and their staffs this week, the people have spoken firmly against this bill.  Republican leadership rushed their healthcare bill to the floor without enough consideration for the lives of the people it would affect.  I am pleased that the Affordable Care Act will stay in place, and promise to join my colleagues in opposing any bill that comes up in the future, should it be as disorganized and dangerous as this one.”

As of now, the GOP Healthcare bill has not been rescheduled for a vote.
