Statement from Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron:
“This is a gut punch to the hard working people of Arizona.
“Mitch McConnell and the 13 Republican Senators have rewritten our existing health care law, a law which granted health access to millions of Americans, and have come out of hiding to give giant tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations, all while giving those most in need the shaft.
“Today we’re making a call to sanity to both Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain, by asking them to vote NO on this disastrous Trumpcare bill. This goes beyond politics, this is for the livelihood of hundreds of thousands of their constituents, especially the innocent children of Arizona.
“The Arizona Democratic Party, our elected officials, and candidates believe that health care is a right for every Arizonan, and we will continue to fight any attempt to the contrary.”
