WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted on a procedural motion that would begin debate to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare):

“It is extremely disappointing to witness the votes of 50 Senate Republicans change the entire healthcare landscape for millions of Americans. Far too many of our most vulnerable fellow citizens stand to lose desperately needed healthcare coverage, face tremendous increases in their insurance premiums and have fewer health care insurance options available to them in the marketplace.

“Americans deserve better.”
