Grassley statement on Senate vote

Posted: Updated:

The health care debate will begin again in the United States Senate, after Vice-President Mike Pence broke the 50-50 tie.

Sen. Chuck Grassley issued the following comment after the Senate voted in favor of the motion to proceed to health care legislation. 

“By voting to move to proceed, the Senate sent the message that Obamacare is not working as promised.   Obamacare has caused higher premiums and insurance that many people can’t afford to use.  Now that we’ve opened the debate, all 100 senators have the chance to debate the issue and offer their amendments and ideas.   Each senator can decide how to vote, based on the final bill and how it’s amended.  The Senate process should work this way for the benefit of the American people.”
