Crowley delivers floor speech calling on Republicans to end obsession with the health care law, and instead focus on the issues that matter for the American people

(Washington, D.C.) –Today, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx), Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, delivered a speech on the House floor against House Republicans’ H.R. 3762, legislation that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act and attack women’s health services. This legislation takes advantage of a budget rule, known as reconciliation, to pursue partisan legislation that has previously failed to get support. With this legislation, House Republicans are laying the groundwork for another government shutdown in December by demonstrating their inability to focus on anything but attacking health care programs and women’s access to health services.
