FEINSTEIN ON REPEAL OF AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
Republican Health Care Plan Would Devastate Families (May 4, 2017)
“I am 100 percent opposed to the House-passed health care bill. The bill passed today is even worse than the version in March that failed to get enough Republican votes to pass. But we don’t know exactly how bad the bill is or what it would cost because House Republicans jammed it through without an independent analysis from the Congressional Budget Office. This is outrageous and the height of hypocrisy. To read the press release, CLICK HERE.
New Bill Would Safeguard Women’s Preventive Health Care Services (May 4, 2017)
“The Republican plan would hold our state hostage by denying tax credits to Californians unless the state changes its laweven though the Affordable Care Act adheres to federal law. This is a punitive policy that would cause significant harm to women in my state and we are doing all we can to defeat it.” To read the press release, CLICK HERE.
Latest House Health Care Scheme Would Devastate Care for Millions (April 26, 2017)
“This version is still a tax cut for the richest Americans and would cause 24 million Americans to lose their insurance. Even worse, House Republicans now want to allow insurance companies to offer plans that don’t cover essential health care services, like mental health and maternity care, and charge those with pre-existing conditions much more.” To read the press release, CLICK HERE.
Nomination of Alexander Acosta, Labor Secretary (April 26, 2017)

Repealing this retirement rule means California won’t be able to provide retirement savings access for 7.5 million workers.” To read the press release, CLICK HERE.
Feinstein Opposes Offshore Drilling Executive Order (April 28, 2017)
