Washington, DC—Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on House Republicans’ decision to vote to repeal health care reform:
“Republicans are voting to take tax breaks away from small businesses, raise prescription drug prices for seniors and let insurance companies go back to denying coverage to sick children. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Republicans’ plan would also add more than $1 trillion to the deficit. This is nothing more than partisan grandstanding at a time when we should be working together to create jobs and strengthen the middle class."
