Klobuchar: Rose Garden Ceremony a ‘Celebration’ of Taking Health Care away from Millions

‘I don’t think they should be celebrating taking health care away from millions of Americans’

EXCERPT:

KLOBUCHAR: "There’s a lot of Americans that are hanging on every word here in terms of changes that I think must be made with the Affordable Care Act. But that’s not what this is. This was just a celebration of a bill that basically takes away health care for millions of Americans and doesn’t make the kind of fixes that we need. I think we need to do something about pharmaceutical prices, including negotiation under Medicare Part D, less expensive drugs from Canada, a bill I have with John McCain, we need to help with the exchanges and make some improvements to that, delivery system reform. This was a big bill when it was passed and big bills need changes and reform but that is not what happened over in the House last week. And I don’t think they should be celebrating taking health care away from millions of Americans."
